A Vast Array of Vintage

A few weeks ago, before driving south for some continental winter sun, my mum presented me with a shoe box. Upon removing the lid, I discovered a whole pile of papers.

Leafing through the papers, I discovered many vintage sewing patterns, all once belonging to the now elderly mother of a family friend. All patterns for dresses, (my favourite) I was pleased to find that there are several styles that I would happily wear, if and when I am able to make them. My first job is to have a closer look at each pattern and check whether they are complete as well as adaptable for my measurements. Which do you like and any suggestions for the one you think I should attempt first?

  1. I think that the ‘See & Sew 3820’ is a very you dress! I’m sure that wouldn’t need too much fabric either 🙂 You will have a new wardrobe by the time half-term is over!


    1. Thank you 🙂 That’s a great idea, I’ve also been thinking of trying to find a kimono pattern & some suitable silky fabric as I love Japanese prints and they are so in at the moment. Might be tricky to sew silk though?
