I've dedicated a considerable amount of free time over the past week to a work-in-progress of the organizational variety. One of my New Year Resolutions involves my ever-expanding sewing pattern collection. It's unwieldy. Previously, there was little order or reason to way I stored my patterns. It made things impossible to find. Frankly, I couldn't keep track of what I have. So, I enlisted the aid of Vintage Pattern Wiki and Pinterest to create an online archive of my pattern collection.
In the process of archiving, I've been able to contribute a number of patterns to the Vintage Pattern Wiki compilation. I'm so glad to be able to add to the site, since it's a resource I use constantly! I've divided my Pinterest boards by manufacturer- it seemed the most logical way to organize them. Having my collection available to view online is going to be a major asset during my impulses to purchase patterns! (j/k....not really) As for the patterns themselves, I've been getting them properly stored in the process also, but that's a post for another day.
I'm not done. I have a lot of work left before I'm finished. But, I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. These are some of the 'gems' of my collection. Obviously, I'm a sucker for neckline interest and a full skirt. However, I do have a lot more 'practical' patterns than I originally anticipated. You can see my Pinterest boards HERE if you're curious.

A timely reminder that I need to put my patterns onto Pinterest to avoid accidentally buying duplicates.

I love your collection of vintage patterns. I have just had a look through them on Pinterest. I really like the 1940's ones.
