Patterns are worth keeping. Currently my collection houses knitting, sewing and crochet patterns from all eras. My mother who lives in rural Minnesota sends me some as she finds them like this 70's Butterick cape pattern. I didn't pay much attention to it when I sifted through the box of vintage supplies she had sent.
Until I came upon this cape by Nadinoo and felt its essense from some past closet in my mind.
No to be outdone Dear Creatures has a gorgeous cape too, the cobwebs cleared and I'm realizing that my mother is subtly ahead of the fashion trends.
