is guest, password is pattern. Do a search for age, gender and type of
garment going year by year can be a bit tedious, I would like to go

The scans are of the pattern
envelopes and do include the pattern layout. This may seem really
daunting but they are a fantastic learning source Smile If you print the
images to full a full A4 you can then cut the pieces out and sellotape
them together to get an idea of how the patterns work and then you can
look at how to scale them up and also how to adapt them.
You now need to register, and if you are comfortable scaling up patterns then this would be a worthwhile investment.
