Have you ever had this happen to you? It seems to happen to me a lot. You get a vintage pattern, open it up and discover that there’s not only the pieces you need, but also some random ones that don’t belong to that pattern!
Is there a Pattern Piece Loss Database? There should be. We could be reuniting lost pattern pieces to happy families!
This is the piece I found today. I thought it was such an odd shape and then I realized it must be a facing for a jacket. I looked up the number on the Vintage Patterns Wiki, and there she was, Simplicity 3424, “Simple to make” jackets.
Maybe the wiki could add a thing about lost and found pieces? Or we just start commenting on the pages indicating such?
