Mission McCall Monday missing images 500-510

It's been a long time since I've done a 'Mission McCall Mondays' post! For those of you new to the series, my goal is to update the Vintage Pattern Wiki so that it's complete for all McCall patterns from mid 1936-1940.  This week, I'm happy to post a few of the previously missing images from the Kaumagraph Transfers 500-510 patterns.  A big thank you to Lauren from Wearing History for sending these my way!

Patterns 502 and 503 are for transfer designs for tea towels and bath towels. I really love the kitty cat in pattern 502!

Pattern 505 is for an amazing apron with an adorable transfer to add an embroidered flower. I just love the waist and hem on this apron!

Pattern 507 is more embroidery for guest towels. I think these are so lovely!

Pattern 508 is a transfer design for embroidery on wool and knitted garments. I think my favourite is the belt, hat and matching gloves!

Last up this week is this pattern 510 which looks like a pattern for applique to put on pillow cushions!

Which is your favourite this week?

Missing images so far:  9011, 9012, 9013, 9014, 9017, 9040, 9041, 9050, 9062, 9073, 9082 and 9088. If you want to contribute to the Mission McCall--just email me the images or pattern covers and I'll update them in the Vintage Pattern Wiki.  myhappysewingplace[at]googlemail[dot]com.


  1. Wow! Embroidery pattern is my favorite!!! Love enrich garments!!

  2. Love the boat with the crazy sails!

  3. Ooh, I love the embroidered beret. That would make a great project. I can't wait to start wearing my beret!

  4. Oh Debi, these are amazing. I love the pillow cases and guest towels, and the aprons, and the belt and the beret...well you get the idea!

  5. Those aprons are to die for and I love the embroidery patterns on the top one. Very nice.

  6. I think my favourites are the running cockerels on the tea towels (I can just see them all running for their food) and the butterfly motif for the aprons.

  7. What an ambitious project! I really love the apron... I need more aprons in my life, clearly.

  8. Pretty Pretty. I keep meaning to do a little hand embroidery on something...

  9. I think 505 is a butterfly, actually. My favourite is the one with the roosters.

  10. Got quite excited to find I have an image of one of your missing patterns and can help with the project. Emailed it yesterday, hope it arrived safely.

  11. That applique pattern is gorgeous! :)

    You have so inspired me to sew 1940's patterns, but I must admit that my first one is not working out very well. I'm worried it will end up in the dreaded UFO pile! lol! :)


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
