Adorable vintage pattern book

Last weekend we went to the Two Women Art and Antique show just outside of Spokane. I forgot my camera, so no pictures sorry, but we had to share the vintage pattern book we found there. This adorable McCalls pattern book is from 1944 and the pictures are absolutely charming!
