Vintage Sewing Patterns!
Here are some interesting artifacts from my family history.
A few years ago, my mom gave me a crate of sewing patterns from her youth in the 1970s, when it was more common for women to sew their own clothes.
Because the cover illustrations on these patterns are so much fun to look at, I scanned them so that I could share them with family and friends. There are 55 pattern covers in this Vintage Sewing Patterns photo album!
What’s awesome is that two dresses made from these patterns in the 1970s still exist and are still in use today! I am seriously impressed by the quality and wearing power of fabric produced more than 30 years ago.
