I found three vintage patterns. I often find '70s patterns while op shopping, but rarely find earlier ones than that.
I think they cost me about $2 all together.

I had to get this 1960s coat even though we're going into summer. It has a little bow/knot thing above the top button. I took in the side seams and the shoulders a bit. The whole coat is interfaced in this weird paper-y type stuff that I have found in some of my other '60s clothes. It has a really nice lining, though.
