I really don't need more dressmaking patterns - two drawers of my four drawer filing cabinet are stuffed to the gills with patterns - but how could I resist this one, only 75c at the Salvos in Sandown?

I love it for the envelope art, but it's the hat that really does it for me! The envelope itself is a little worn but, from the look of the pattern tissue and instructions inside, I doubt that it's ever even been unfolded much less used. I have vaguely nefarious ideas on painting or drawing on this image, but I think I'll scan it into a file first.
