Save Them While You Can - Vintage Chic


I was kindly informed by lovely eagle eyed blog reader Brandy that Miss Raynes blog Vintage Chic will sadly be closing at the beginning of May. I have over the last few days been posting here some of the patterns I had missed over the years from her fabulous site, and to the best of my ability saving all the ones I have listed (which should hopefully be everything) to my computer.

So if you want to make any of these glorious patterns I would advise you all to save them while you can as I cannot guarantee that I will have a copy of the one you are after, though I might!
