Well, I admit that I am late to the vintage pattern party, but a friend at church today gave me this adorable item, so here I am! My first honest to goodness vintage pattern! Ironically I actually ordered this last week, but it hasn't arrived yet.
So, all you vintage experts out there - how old do you think this baby is? Based on my limited knowledge of the cover art and logos I'm guessing 40s. What do y'all think? The paper is quite fragile, so I'm going to need to take careful care of it. Any tips? I'm such a vintage n00b! Help me out, sewing sistas!
ETA (1/17/09) - Thanks to Myra who sent me this link on Ebay to help date vintage Simplicity patterns. There is an actual copyright date printed on the back of the instruction sheet. This one is from 1949!
