The pattern number is only ONE indicator of the date on vintage sewing patterns.You can’t use the number alone because the companies would start over again when they got to a certain level.In the beginning of Home Patterns, the bust measurement is often the only measurement given.By the 1940s patterns gave bust and hip measurements but often the waist was not given (due to the fact that the sewist could change that element). In 1956 sizing changed and a Size 12 was for a 32 inch bust.There is more difference between 19 that there is between 19.Besides the general look and art work of vintage patterns, the sizing can be a very good indicator.
Our relationships are often based on projected material.From my experience as a researcher and educator, with a Ph. in Psychology and Doctorate of Education, I've found a few common toxic personalities that people may tend to be drawn to, based on their early relationship patterns, and the red flags to watch for as you recognize the need to break free from these toxic types. The Narcissist Narcissism can be hard to detect because, in part, they are great at hiding their self-interests.They are the perfect chameleons, seemingly highly tuned in to your wants and needs.We gravitate to people who let us do what we know how to do -- whether positive or negative -- people who are familiar to us.
The early patterns of interactions that we learned with our opposite-sex parent might lead us to the same patterns again, keeping us in our comfort zone.
Nevertheless, everything for the narcissist directs back to self-interest.
