Weakness for vintage sewing patterns

There are some blogs I really shouldn't read anymore. One of them is called "wearing history" and the person who writes it sells a lot of old patterns on Etsy, as well as some that she has rescued and repro'd.

I find myself with the mouse pointer hovering about "buy now" pretty much anytime I visit the store, or read the blog. Some of the 1940's patterns are just fantastic.
A couple examples from the current store:

If I was to buy them I'd have to do a lot of work to get them to fit. Although they are pretty large sizes for vintage patterns, sadly I'm even bigger at the moment! They are so pretty... so tempting!

Thanks for the information on Wearing History. Nice blog.

Don't do it - I bought a ton of vintage patterns years ago with grand intentions. I pull them out from time to time and dream. Beautiful but I question if I'll ever do anything with them.
