In Freebies

Hollywood Patterns – March 1946

I’ll be announcing the winner of my recent giveaway at the end of this post, but I wanted EVERYONE to feel like a winner so I decided to release another freebie! This mini catalog by Hollywood Patterns contains eight pages of vintage sewing inspiration from March, 1946.

Do you recognize the dress from page two? If you’ve seen this sewing project of mine, the pattern should look very familiar! It’s the same one! How neat is that?


(To purchase original catalogs just like this one, visit Judy at vintage4me2. She’s awesome.)

Please feel free to link to this page, pin this page, or send your friends here. Please do not redistribute, re-post, or sell these downloads (in whole or part) anywhere else. I have made it available FREE for you here on Lucky Lucille!


If you appreciate these little peeks into Fashion/Sewing history as much as I do, a cuppa’ coffee makes an excellent thank you. 😉 😉 Donate only if you want to, of course!




To open the eBook you must click the download button from an iPad or iPhone, in Safari browser, with iBooks installed. A new browser window will open and will appear blank for several seconds. It’s a pretty large file so the screen will look as if nothing is happening as the file loads, but soon you will be prompted to open the eBook in iBooks or a similar application, from that browser window. (Note: on our newer iPad/iPhone, the eBook will download from Chrome browser!)


The PDF should open on any computer, tablet, and/or browser, but may take a little while to load. Again, the images are large. When the browser window opens, click the icon in the top toolbar (second icon in from the far right) to download and save the PDF.

Happy Reading!

p.s. the randomly selected winner for the Vintage4me2 giveaway is: Megan from Bobbins and Bustles! Congrats, Megan 🙂
