Artwork on Old Simplicity Dress Patterns


I found this pattern a few days ago...while shopping for some yarn at the thrift store, St Vinnie's.  I like the artwork that they used on patterns. I think that it makes the clothing look very sophisticated and lovely. Todays' patterns use photos, not so artsy. These old patterns do not have dates. The mailing address doesn't have a zip code either. I just guess by the style of the clothing, so late 1950's to early 1960's for this one. I think that someone could actually use this pattern today, for an evening jacket. I paid $0.49 for it, the same price as when it was new...of course that would be maybe 2 or 3 cents in today's economy.
