American Weekly 3841 Extraordinary Peplum Dress 1940's

I received a huge box of the most awesome old patterns yesterday.  I listed a number today that were uncut but over 100 still to count pieces for completeness.  Keep an eye out for next week's listings.

A few extras listed today because of their uniqueness.  The first featured is:  American Weekly 3841 Extraordinary Peplum Dress 1940's - it doesn't get any more forties looking than this dress.

My research didn't bring up even one of this pattern.  Very rare.  This is in factory folds -

Next is : Simplicity 3766 Enchanting Slip & Petticoat / ca. 1952  which is a misses' size but I visualize a teen getting ready for a Bill Haley & the Comets concert or maybe Ritchie Valens - La Bamba!

For doll lovers check this pattern out:  McCall 1203 French & Chinese Boy & Girl Character Dolls with Clothes + Transfer 1945 just an amazing old doll pattern.  It is unused - hard to believe.

If you love Raggedy Ann and Andy there is an original 1963 pattern:  McCall's 6941 Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Andy Stuffed Dolls & Clothes 1963 and also a Barbie and Fashion Doll clothes pattern: 

Well it's almost spring and then summer but this coat is a lightweight one and the attached scarf collar is so attractive.  Great for a cool evening:  Simplicity 6020 Easygoing Coat with Scarf Collar 1990's 
What a nice skirt!  Butterick 4788 Festive Petticoat & Skirt 1987 - I like the tops that were pictured with it.  Be creative
