flower-girl dress patterns free to a good home

If you'd like them,

please e-mail me using the "My Page" link--

I'm not sure I'll remember to get back to this forum.

I'd prefer to send all 3 of these to the same person, mainly because although I *think* I was careful to get the pieces back in the right pattern envelope, it's possible a tiny bit of shuffling took place.

They are from 4 years ago, about, when my DD was in my friend's wedding. I bought aeveral in case I needed the neckline from one, etc. I tried to find a link so you could see what they looked like, but they're out of print. The styles are very classic, though--fitted bodice w/ a V at the bottom of the bodice, and a full gathered skirt. Several sleeve options.

McCall's 3489, size CH (7-8-10)

McCall's 3464, size CH (7-8-10)

Simplicity 7000 (top and skirt, but looks like a gown), size BB (

I was able to view M3489 on eBay...very pretty. I recently bought a similar pattern in two sizes for my DGD's for holiday dresses(if I ever get to them[sigh]). The older one is already in size 12-14. The younger one is in a 6.
If you get no responses here, you might donate them to your favorite thrift store. I regularly peruse the patterns at mine.

I give all my patterns to the Am Vets thrift store,they're the only thrift shop around here that puts them out for sale.

RE: flower-girl dress patterns free to a good home

I'm not sure that thrift shops are a good option for me--Not that many sewers in NYC, is my suspicion. And I've never seen any at the two stores I've been in--though I'll admit I haven't looked that hard for this category.

We don't have AmVets (and something like this might be a store-by-store thing anyway).

I could try Craig's List or Freecycle, I guess.

tally sue, I'd love to have them if you don't get any other takers. I'll be making my granddaughter's first communion dress in the spring....probablyy a size 8. I'll e-mail my address. thanks.
