Marian Martin 9220 Mary's Out Shopping Blouse & Slacks 1960's is one of those patterns that brings to mind, actually makes me visualize, the 1960's. I swear I wore this outfit in my mid-teens. Oops - dating myself. The 60's really had some great fashion trends that haven't even begun to go out of style - like this combo. Add a pair of matching tennies and a purse and start cruising the malls. More Marian Martin Patterns

In my never ending quest for research of listings I ran across a blogsite called SewCraftful which I could never hope to compete with - oh my gosh who has the time??!! Just lucky for us they do - they have many neat articles but the one that caught my eye was How to Value Vintage Sewing Patterns. This is such an accurate description of what I do to evaluate vintage or even newer patterns. I never just find a pattern, scan it, edit it, and list it. Every single one is researched thoroughly. Definitely more time consuming but it gives you the buyer more info too. If I say it is scarce or rare you can be certain that at the time I list it is. Often after 8 or 10 months I reevaluate a pattern's worth and either delete it or relist it at a lesser price to move the product.
