Looking for an old pattern
I am trying to help my mom locate an old pattern for a baby wardrobe. She started making these back in the 60's and 70's and has made several. Now that she wants to make another one she has found that her old copy is so faded that most of it cannot be read. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?

Hmm.. have you tried eBay? A short search turned up the words, but not the actual pattern.

Roxie, I just bought several lots of vintage baby patterns on eBay looking for just one pattern. Give me a couple of days to search through it and if it's in there, it's yours.

Just one question though, is Baby's First Wardrobe in a book or booklet with many patterns or is it a booklet of it's own? This will help me find it if I have it.

I'm sorry, it's not in any of the lots I bought. :(

Good luck finding the leaflet for your mom!

What pieces did the pattern include? Looking through patterns I came across this: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/30015AD.html. Probably not what you want, but just in case.

Baby's first wardrobe
I too Am looking for that same pattern. I actually have a copy but it is so old I can longer make out all the directions. My mother has made it so many times that she has it memorized.

In this case I would ask your mom to write down all she remembers. What she doesn't remember might be easy to figure out.

You might give this vintage pattern library a try, http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/ They have all kinds of books, leaflets and such. This one also has a lot of vintage patterns http://www.freevintagecrochet.com/
Hope this helps!

Baby's frist wardrobe
Hi, if you are still looking for this pattern, I think it is on Trove,
It was a booklet in The Australian Women's Weekly July 12 1978, I have spent ages looking for it myself. I hope this helps.
