Vintage patterns: my new addiction

I am slowly discovering all the treasures that etsy has to offer.  Most recently I have been perusing the vintage and supply sections and found some great stuff.  I just bought a bunch of vintage dress patterns for my girls and can't wait to try them out.  I really like using these because they tend to be very straightforward and easy to follow.  I have a lot to learn when it comes to sewing and have found that this is a good place to start.  So, here are a few of my most recent finds.  

My personal favorite.  Love the pleating and simple style.  I found a great website with the most darling kids clothing, Neige, love these clothes but won't be shelling out the big bucks anytime soon.  So, I am trying to find a few patterns to recreate a few in my own style.

Love this one, too.

Hmmm, now I just need to figure out how to add another couple of hours to each day so that I can actually work on some of these.

And, figure out a way to get my girls to appreciate MY style.

I give props to your taste. Those patterns look like the little dresses from the boutiques here. If you want them to look totally Euro, you'll have to make leederhosen (sp?) shorts for Eli in a coordinating fabric, to be worn with tights of course.
