|OOP fleece patterns from Mom|
|NL 6790: what year(s)? S7123 is almost as old as I am!|
Now, for the "sore thumb" in this batch ... a 1975 Simplicity 7123 mens/unisex poncho/coat ... sans envelope. Several of the mid-1970s patterns in Mom's boxes are missing their envelopes, so I sincerely doubt these will be sought-after collectibles. Even though the pattern tissue looks like it has never been unfolded. For those of y'all 70s-era vintage fans ... hold your fire. I have no intentions of cutting this pattern tissue. It probably wouldn't survive actual use. However, I definitely want to trace it off and use one of my Shetland wools to actually make this pattern! Seriously, this one is a neato-looking coat. Is this old enough to be considered "vintage"?
Oh, I may be asking for more help as I sort through the rest of the small box of patterns:

The unpacking of the Indiana loot continues ... and the thought briefly crossed my mind today if I will get things organized enough to get back to actual sewing!
