I don't recall that pattern either, but it is a great shirt! Sometimes I get intense about finding a certain thing and have been know to search for over 10 years for a fabric and it did get reprinted. Don't think I'd do that again, but I understand why you are wanting this exact pattern. Cute photo!
I have spent hours and hours searching! I am sure I donated the pattern along with others when I moved north 3 years ago. You can bet when I go south next year I will be checking out the place where I donated.
I will check but do not think i have it. If you do fin d the pattern please share the number bcause it looks very nice, great picture of you!
I will share along with fireworks and balloons!
you are funny, i am still looking too...
Suzanna, I have been searching to no avail, for this pattern. I can't tell if if has set in sleeves or raglan, but if you have a loose fitting top with a collar, button up pattern I don't think it would be that hard to make your long, no lapel, boxed front placket. Couldn't you fold back the lapel part of your pattern before you cut your fabric? Fold it to the inner edge where your placket begins and square off? I'm sure jenne has better tips than me, when garment sewing, but I think you could adjust a pattern if you have a loose fitting one.
Thanks Toogie! Top has set in sleeves. Your idea will probably work. I do have a loose fitting pattern I can try it on. I will let you know how it turns out. Today I did not search for the pattern...taking a break!
Hi Suzanna, do you have a Hospice shop or SPCA shop where you are,
as here in South Africa we have these and they are donated all old patterns. Hugs from Maureen
I have been to one store that takes donations. They have thousands of old patterns. I may take a few hours and go through the patterns. I hope they have a table and chair for me! I don't know why I am so obsessed over this pattern. Thank you for the idea!
Suzanna, I have to agree with everyone here, you are beautiful.
Many of the pattern companies are now offering vintage patterns. Here are some sites to help in you search. I hope that you find your pattern.
Thanks for all that information and the compliment.
Sorry but no help either. It is a lovely shirt pattern and the wearer looks pretty good as well. 😊
Thanks for giving me a smile!
That is a big parrot! You look wonderful! I do not remember that pattern. sorry no help here.
Thank you for the kindness! I remember I was a bit afraid of the parrott.
I sewed a lot back then but do not remember this shirt and I love the look of it. Sandy
Thanks I will keep searching.
Suzanna, what a beautiful shirt, it looks so good on you and you are such a beauty.
I also love the Macaw you are holding, they are such magnificent looking creatures.
Sorry I can't help you as I don't recognise the pattern, but I hope someone does. Love Chris
Thank you for the compliment! I will keep searching for the pattern. One of my favorite pictures is of Blackie holding two birds on a trip to Bahamas.
Try contacting the pattern companies. Since you have a picture, it could be helpful. Hugs. Nan
Good idea! I may try that!
Hi without reading properly which is probably a habit of mine I presumed you were after a pattern of a parrot. I am on my phone so on enlarging your post and careful reading I discover it’s the sewing pattern for the blouse. Apart from suggesting you search eBay I’m sorry I can’t help.
Yesterday I went through a bag of old patterns from the 1970’s and found a pattern for a huge tiger. I have kept it as a memory of the fun we had with it but the many blouse patterns will be given away. Good luck with your search
The parrot picture was taken in the bahamas. I have searched etsy 40 pages so far and still on the hunt.
