My first 1940s pattern. Very well loved, but still usable.

Why don't we do a pattern trade?  I'm up for it!

That is lovely! Can I butt in? I'd love to do a pattern swap- I've been gifted with some lovely older patterns, but that gifter was alot smaller than me! They need good (thinner) homes!

It may be hard to see from this photo, but this pattern is size 16 (bust 34).  The waist is small (25 inches with no ease) but that's easy enough to alter.   I've actually made a copy on tracing paper because of the modifications I made (lowered neckline, increase waist and hip, changed from zip placket to an invisible side zip, etc.) so I'll wait and see if Charlotte takes the bait!  

Anne:  what size do you need / what size are the patterns that are too small?  We should start a new thread, "Patterns to Trade".
