needle&craft

I don't know why but I've always really loved looking at vintage sewing patterns and craft catalogs. I can't tell you how many dusty and dogeared 25 cent sewing patterns I have at my parent's house. (I swore I would make those rompers and swing skirts every time.)
These scanned images from a 1971 fall/winter Ladie's Home Journal needle&craft magazine are making my 5 o'clock.

The sweater with the faux collar is enviable. If I had any knitting skills at all (aside from straight line scarf making) I would kill for that pattern.
