Modes Royale

Over a year ago, I discovered the Modes Royale patterns. I became an obsessed woman trying to track down pictures of the patterns. I was so excited when I was able to buy a whole bunch of scanned catalogues on CD. I have found many outfits I want to recreate.

Here is what I have done so far.

Hi, My mother was a dressmaker in the 1940s. She had a collection of pattern catalogs among which were several Modes Royale books. I spent many hours looking at the pretty fashions and replicating them as paper doll dresses. All these years later I am delighted to find many of them on the internet, including as you mentioned, a CD of scans. I'll have to invest in it, just for dreaming. Anne C. Olympia, WA
