Patterns and Saving Grandma's history

So Rita was talking 'bout incomplete patterns...now I don't have 900000 like she does.. I probably only have a few hundred......but some are incomplete. I dug them out, took pictures and will offer them on ebay.
I found these in a box....I'm guessing the '39 clippings were the wishes of a young girl.....and the women's pattern that looks a lot like the child's pattern....were chosen for a mother and daughter's matching ensembles.....perhaps this young girl became a mother and took great pleasure in dressing her little girl......
These clippings are dated 1939...




This pattern has pleated shorts and a jacket.....only a shred of the pattern remains....



And a child's 1945 pattern...That looks a lot like mom's up there !
