Vintage Patterns

The first time I used a sewing pattern, it was tricky!  But in time, I’ve figured out the basics.  I have so much more to learn about patterns but I feel confident that I can use one without too much trouble!

Today, I want to discuss some vintage patterns I recently acquired.   About two months ago I received an entire trash bag full of vintage patterns (1950’s-1960’s).  I sorted through them and decided which ones to keep and which ones were too retro for me.  It was at this point I realized the patterns were marketed for Juniors and Misses.

Some of the patterns are really cute, like these:

And some are just not my style:

Needless to say, all of these patterns made it into the don’t want pile (even the cute ones because they’re duplicates!).

I have yet to attempt to use a vintage pattern.  I’m a bit intimated I guess.

What about you?  Do you sew with Vintage Patterns?  And which of these do you like or dislike?
