Free Pattern: Neckline Embroidery Motifs from Simplicity 7307, c. 1947

Do you ever obsess about owning a pattern, even if you'll probably never use it?

free embroidery pattern 1940s vintage simplicity 7307 rock and roll music notes

I bought Simlicity 7307 purely for the two motifs below - arn't they divine?   I would love to use them on a blouse or t-shirt.

I'll probably never end up using them, but a girl can dream right?
And since they're so pretty darn awesome, I thought you guys might like a copy as well.

To print, just right click and open the image in a new tab. (You might need to play with the resizing to make sure it will fit your oen garmets).

I hope you enjoy them!
