This post is really an excuse to show some lovely vintage patterns i’ve been acquiring! They have come from a mixture of places, charity shops, eBay and of course my beloved Etsy! Some have been cheaper than others (I think the most was about $8?).
So far i’ve completed one of the patterns, i’m just beginning to sew so it was a steep learning curve! Some parts weren’t followed exactly as they should have been but it turned out pretty well and didn’t fall apart so I was very pleased! It felt very satisfying to wear something that I had made. (Pattern 4745!)
You should take a look at Sewaholics blog on following vintage patterns which was a great help. A lot of clear photographs and tips which was really useful.
I hope you enjoy them 🙂
