Downloadable Vintage Butterick Patterns Cards for Mother’s Day

Happy Mother's Day from McCall Pattern Company

Happy Mother’s Day! Did you know that for many years our pattern books had a separate tab just for Mother-Daughter patterns? Some of the vintage patterns are so cute that even if dressing alike isn’t your thing, you just might be tempted in this case.

So, in honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday, we went to our archive room and found three vintage Mother-Daughter patterns from Butterick in the 1940s and early 1950s that we thought would make cute cards:
