13 Vintage Sewing Patterns

Thirteen Vintage Sewing Patterns

Now there's a Wiki for Vintage Sewing Patterns. It's quite cool, however you can't browse by image; so unless you know what you are looking for by pattern maker and pattern number, it's a bit bulky... I recommend using the "Random page" feature for browsing.

Many thanks to Rita at the Cemetarian blog for showing this to me!

These are stunning -- esp the ones from the 30s and 40s :)

My Mom definitely had some of those (not the male robe one).... they were inexpensive back then, and she sewed to save money!

Okay, don't laugh at me, but I really think sewing is an art that's getting lost. You know, clothes FIT when you sew them yourself -- or sucker a friend into sewing and fitting it to you...
