I love perusing ebay for vintage sewing patterns, and a couple weeks after emerging victorious from a bidding war over a terrific lot of 45 patterns (mostly from the ’60s and ’70s, but some from the ’50s as well) — my package arrived in the mail! I just love the vintage illustrations, the fonts…the yellowed paper and the worn edges of the envelopes. And, of course, I can’t wait to sew one of these! I have my eye on a fab ’70s tunic that looks like something Jane Fonda would have worn in Klute.
If you love vintage patterns, you should have a look at http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page, so many beautiful illustrations and also very inspiring!
All the best,
