Take my stuff!

About 6 months ago, right after I bought my first sewing machine, I splurged and bought a whole bunch of vintage patterns from Ebay. Since it was a hodgepodge of patterns in all different sizes and shapes I haven't actually made anything from the pile yet. I decided to sort my ever growing pile of patterns today and noticed that there are a few repeats. Soooo, I'm going to put them up here for free. If you want one of them leave me a comment or e-mail me at the address on the left and I'll send whichever one you want.

From left to right we have...
1. McCall's 4083 - This is a size 16, which is really probably a size 14 nowadays. It's a pattern for the skirt and the top.
2. McCall's 5543 - This is a size 16 also. It's a pattern for the long sleeve talk, a racer back tank top, a short sleeve top, a wrap skirt and a pair of pants/shorts.
3. McCall's 5774 - This is a size 14. The pattern is for the skirt and the jumper. Some pieces have been cut but they should all be there.

From left to right we have...
1. Butterick 4139 - (Can you believe they were only $1.25 then?) This is a pattern for an eight-gore, slightly flared skirt in four lengths with waistband. Size 30. Waist=30 Hip=40
2. Simplicity 5588 - Size 16. Pattern for a shirt (short and long sleeved) and pants and a skirt.
3. McCall's 4069 - This is a size 16. The pattern is for a sleeveless dress, a long sleeved and short sleeved skirt, pants, shorts and a skirt.

All patterns were very very well kept by a previous loving owner. If you want one, let me know!

I don't think I'm the right size for these, but I just wanted to say that I love the things you're making. I found you via Gorgeous Things gallery, and I LOVE your tank top you made!

I found your blog through following links here and there and I just wanted to say your blog is a lot of fun! Very instructive and inspiring, too! Can I ask what kind of sewing machine you use? I'm looking to purchase and there are just too many confusing choices!
