New Vintage Pattern Hauls

Hello, my name is Aisha, and I am a patternholic.  I own well over 600 patterns, and yet my desire for more never seems to wane.  One reason is that I love having options available whenever the desire to sew strikes me.  It may be that I love everything about a pattern, or it may be a style detail contained within. Lately, I've been looking at vintage options, most likely inspired by creations I've seen come off the sewing tables of my favorite bloggers.  Whatever the case, I've been looking through Pinterest and eBay a lot lately and found some vintage styles which have fueled my pattern desire.

For example, I spotted and pinned an image of Vogue 7939 because I like the front drape of the bodice and off-center skirt opening.  This particular image originated from an Etsy posting where this pattern was being sold for $9.99.  Not a bad price, but I wasn't convinced I wanted to pay that, plus shipping, to own I pinned it and waited.
