Vintage Clothing Sewing Patterns

There comes great satisfaction when you finish up a piece of clothing you've sewn from a pattern.  It never gets old to me.  I love it!

It's lots of fun looking through vintage catalogs and viewing the latest in clothing fashions.  There are distinct changes in our clothing patterns throughout the decades.  The best part of fashion, though, is that everything old becomes new again.  Well, most everything.  Luckily the Victorian Age has stayed in its' place.  I cannot imagine wearing tight corsets and long dresses day after day.

Open any current sales flier for places like Kohl's and Macy's and you'll see hints of the 1940's through the 1980's.  However, if you sew and care to replicate the vintage look, current patterns in these styles are hard to come by.  That's when people turn to vintage sewing patterns.

I was very fortunate to come across 2 large boxes full of vintage patterns from the 1940's through the 1970's at a recent estate auction in mid-Missouri.  I will be listing them on eBay as well as this website over time, so if vintage clothing sewing patterns is your cup of tea, your cup will overflow shortly!  :)
