I ran across these unique vintage patterns at two different antique shops in Wisconsin. I’m going to attempt to sew using the patterns, but if I have no luck, I’ll be glad to use them as decoration in my bedroom. Sew, Mama, Sew! has some useful tips about sewing from vintage patterns. One of them happens to be buy an “old school sewing book.” Thankfully, I picked up a 1970s (my era of choice for patterns incidentally) copy of The Vogue Sewing Book of Fitting Adjustments & Alternations at Good Will.
$7.50 for the vintage patterns
$3 for the Vogue sewing book
$10.50 (plus whatever I end up spending fabric–don’t worry, I’ll keep you updated!)
Have you ever tried to sew using vintage patterns?
