But when i went to write the listing, i found i couldn't get past the item title.
This is why:
I adore the drawings, and the over-the-top enthusiasm of the description! Superior seems to have done this with a line of patterns aimed at teens in the '40s - i've seen at least one other set of pattern instructions in the same format. I haven't been able to pin down an exact date, but suspect it's a wartime issue. I've tried contacting the Sears archives to get dates for Superior pattern numbers, but haven't ever managed to get a response of any kind. But there are probably catalogs out there - another research project!
