NAME THAT PATTERN: End of Summer Edition!

Friends, it's late August and the days are already getting cooler -- and shorter.  Before you know it we'll be turning back the clocks and wearing long underwear.

While we still have time, let's play another round of the sewing blogosphere's favorite pattern-naming game, MPB's exclusive NAME THAT PATTERN.

The rules are simple: I post photos of patterns I've found online (these are not from my personal collection, btw), and you have to give them a name.

As always, we have some fabulous prizes lined up for our winners, including two weeks of dog-sitting Freddy and Willy -- at your house!  With no further delay, let's play NAME THAT PATTERN!

Grab your pencils -- here's Pattern #1!

Need a bathroom break already?  Here's Pattern #2!

But wait -- there's more: Pattern #3!

Now something for the guys: Pattern #4!

Finally, our last pattern, Pattern #5.

But wait!  As always, we have a BONUS PATTERN for those who feel especially creative (and competitive) -- Pattern #6!

Readers, thank you so much for participating in another round of NAME THAT PATTERN.  As always, I'll be playing too, but don't wait for me: get your answers in ASAP.

Good luck, contestants!

  10. I actually own #5 - I needed to make a snood for a historical costume pageant a few years ago and this pattern was available then. I think I still have the snood somewhere. Interesting to follow their instructions!
    What exactly IS #3 a pattern for? Not the leotard, surely? Maybe just the sweat bands and towels and the tote to carry them around in?

  11. #4 - starring Peter Bonerz as Dr. Jerry Robinson

    Who is playing Password? I recognize Allen Ludden but no one else.

    1. The women look like Ann-Margret and Carol Burnett. Carol's partner looks like James Mason. Not sure about AM's partner.

    2. Oh, Peter, your facial recognition is not good! I think you are wrong on all points. I think the man on the right is Stacy Keach. I tried to enlarge the picture, but I couldn't manage it. We should have a contest to name those people!

    3. Tom Selleck w/Carol Burnett. No one else has those dimples.

  12. #2: Who moved the fire hydrant?

  13. I have nothing clever to offer, but we had Pattern #6. My mother used it to make me a hot pink blouse for junior high glee club in 1971 or so (our color scheme was maroon blazer, hot pink blouse, black skirt). She liked the convertible collar style. We never discussed the shorts.

  14. I'm terrible about coming up with names for these contests, but my chi Romeo would love to have Freddy and Willy come play with him for 2 weeks.

  15. I googled James Mason and Password. The still is a match for youtube video - the "stars" are James Mason and Jane Fonda. The episode is from 1962.

    1. Good work! I suspect the two others are just regular contestants.

  16. #1 Barn Swarm
    #2 The Getaway
    #3 Fairy Paw Prints-cesses
    #4 Mystery Machine Recruitment Tour '73
    #5 The Scarlet Letter Opener
    #6 "We Wear Short-Shorts!"

    2. Kinda Fonda Fonda
    3. ASPCA Most Wanted
    4. Wanna Dance?
