Presents of Mind

At the end of each school year, I buy myself a present (or ten) as a celebration of surviving another pair of semesters with my sanity intact (and more importantly, for not maiming any kids in  the process).  This year, my gift to me is a batch of vintage patterns.  All of these will make excellent additions to my work wardrobe.

These beauties were purchased at Your Pattern Shop, which has a 40% off everything sale.  They also offer free shipping (US & Canada) for the purchase of three or more patterns, plus additional volume discounts.  As I was browsing, I noticed that there is a good selection of sizes (bust 30 - 44) at very reasonable prices.

I have never purchased from this vendor before, but I'm always willing to give a new merchant a chance.  I'll report back when the patterns arrive.
