After seeing that Vouge patterns were on sale at our local fabric store, i decided to look them up to see if they had any 'new' (reproduction) vintage ones.
Do they ever!
Not only that, but the biggest selection i have ever seen!
CLICK HERE to go to the Vintage Vouge homepage.
They have everything from sundresses to wedding dresses, from suits to coats and even a few hat patterns!
They are all from the 1930s thru the 50s and two 60s patterns.
All you have to do is click on one and it tells you the price, sewing level and whatever drawings and fabric suggestions, notions and etc. that you would see on the back of the pattern.
I cant wait to go to the store!
This 1938 ensemble is definatley one of my favorites. I have lots of 50s and 60s dresses i've found at thrift stores and the like, but do not own any 30s stuff, save family photos. Why not make a bunch in whatever colors i like?
I also CANNOT RESIST this 1947 suit. I think it looks very much like the suit Allie Fortune wears on the cover of the book Miss Fortune (by Sara Mills).
I love it!
Ok, those two are my favorite, but who doesnt love 1940s A-line dresses? The only down side to this one is that its at an advanced sewing level :(
1952 flattering coat dress
1946 dress (isnt the model cute?)
I'm deaply considering this 1933 Nacy Drew looking suit
And who doesnt love wedding dresses...
and dont forget the hats!
(30s and 40s)
...Ok so i'm obviously not going to buy everything i've shown.. i dont think... but now we both know of some awsome vintage patterns that arnet over 50s yrs old and make us nervous. We can also skip the next strange colored frock we like the style but not the pattern we see, because i can make one with whatever print i like!
I hope you enjoyed!
