    Thank you Steve for being understanding, for some strange reason my entire question didn't post! It's simplicity pattern # 5778 from 1973. It's of a dolphin, hippos and alligator. I'm missing the instructions. Thanks again I really appreciate you taking time to try and help!

You'll either have to purchase a duplicate of the pattern that has the instructions or find a similar pattern and try to make those instructions work. Sometimes the nice ladies at the local fabric store will help.

Depending on how old that pattern is, you might, possibly, get the primer from the company if you email them or call them.

There are any number of sewing forums where you might post a request and ask if anyone has it and can copy it for you. I got a primer that way once myself. There are some sites that sell vintage and out of print patterns and you might find another copy of the entire thing that way. Easy has some vendors with this kind of stuff. Try a google search.

It's not a very difficult pattern unless you are a beginner sewer. Maybe a friend with more experience could assist you to cut the pieces and assemble them?

McCalls 6692. I need the sewing directions.

You may have to bite the bullet and buy a duplicate of the pattern. The size won't matter since you need only the instructions. You can search the internet and possibly find the pattern at a discount price--perhaps even used would be okay if it includes the instruction pages.

I have lost the instructions to McCalls Pattern No8042 for the Infants' and Preemie Layet which I bought many years ago! Can you please help me obtaining new Instructions, PLEASE???

Copyright laws don't allow copying the instructions and posting them online. But I can suggest re-buying the pattern (I found some on Etsy for as little as $3.99) or buying a similar pattern when Hancock or another fabric store has patterns for cheap. (They frequently have pattern sales for as little as $1.99.) An alternative source could be your local Salvation Army store, as many have older patterns--it doesn't have to be your exact pattern, just a similar looking layette pattern. The layette patterns should have similar sewing instructions, as long as the designs look similar.
