Anned, I have many, many doll clothes patterns & I plan on hanging on to them for a long time. I've even picked up some very old ones at garage sales & have used a few. Once in awhile I'll have people call who have antique dolls they want clothes for & I have used some of these older ones. I'm always looking at them in the pattern books but have to talk myself out of them unless I need to get a specific one. Wish I could do that with fabric!! I wouldn't get rid of them you never know when you might need them.
