I have yet to attempt to sew a vintage style dress from a vintage pattern but I am forever inspired by everyone else’s vintage makes and I feel that I might have caught the bug. I ordered four lovely patterns from Etsy last week and I was sooooo excited to find them on my door mat when I got home from work last night. I have yet to investigate all the pieces to make sure they are all there but I am inclined to totally trust the seller as they arrived in such perfect condition. Amazing, seeing that two of them are around 60 years old!
These designs range from 50’s to 70’s and I love them all. The 1960s Vogue pattern even came with its original label to sew into the finished dress! This will be a fantastic learning curve for me as I have not yet attempted any redrafting of patterns. The ladies of these eras clearly had different proportions so I definitely will not be able to forgo the muslins!
Goodness knows when I will be able to start work on them though. I am swamped with work at the moment, which is typical when I have such great plans to sew! Oh to be retired!!
