Vintage Sewing Pattern Sale Preview and Pattern Grading Roundup

Saturday, August 8, 2015

Tomorrow, my friend Katie, author of Cool Shit I Thrifted will be listing some gorgeous vintage sewing patterns that she found for sale on Instagram! Being a pattern hoarder, I had to pick one too. I've been in love with this suspender skirt from Modcloth and look at this, now I can make my own!

There's some wonderful Mad Men style patterns, a few beautiful 40s separates, lots of great skirts and combination patterns to sew a whole outfit to mix and match. Here are just a few of my favorites:

Many vintage sewing patterns are in the smaller range but they can be graded to a larger size. Here are some fantastic resources and tutorials for sizing up your vintage sewing patterns:
