Advance 5850

I recently purchased some vintage patterns.  I get really excited because it's kind of a grab bag type situation, I never really know what I'm going to get.  I thought this one was very cool for a few reasons.

First, it appears to be fairly rare.  I could only find one reference to it online and I couldn't find any for sale.  Secondly, it is almost in pristine condition.  There are two pieces that have been used, and are in great shape.  The others are still factory folded and instructions are complete.

And last, it has an usual reference at the bottom of the pattern.  The only other example I found didn't have this and the colors were different.

I couldn't find a date on the pattern itself, but the movie was released on the 20th of November, 1951.  I'm assuming it had to have been featured in the December 1951 version of Photoplay, I haven't been able to find inside scans yet.

I've listed it for sale at Honeys & Bumbles, unfortunately it's too small for me and I just don't have the time to try and alter the pattern. Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been absolutely swamped with other things. I hope everyone has a great Christmas!!
