Vintage Dressmaking Patterns for Special Occasion Dresses

With vintage dressmaking patterns, you are either a collector or a sewing enthusiast. So which one are you?
Using sewing patterns to make something classic; to sew that one of a kind 1940’s style outfit means you are fashionably different and bold enough to showcase your fashion sense in a way that’s totally diverse from your ‘everyday woman’. You are kind of exciting in a stylish way.

Collectors never seem to get enough of their rare and dated items.

These days it’s getting more unrealistic to expect to find authentic dated clothes patterns in near perfect condition. Most you’ll find (if any) are usually worn, torn, and terribly discoloured, but that’s a collector’s delight I’m sure, and the most important thing is that the pattern package is vintage.

There will most likely be some missing pieces from a set anyway, so if you are a collector, you’ll need to be careful and perceptive when purchasing old classic dressmaking patterns.

In the majority of cases, envelopes and instructions will be missing but if you are particular about the envelopes, they can be reproduced; that is if you desire to have them as design collectables.
