Vintage Patterns for Hardcore Tailors

Like to sew? Don’t have enough patterns to feed the need? Well then, do I have a site for you! The Vintage Sewing Patterns Wikia stitches together vintage patterns no younger than 25 years old, so if you want to sew your own Hollywood swimsuit from 1946 then this site has you covered:

pattern 1

or, if you want to sew your own Chewbacca costume from McCalls:

pattern 2

Looks pretty authentic doesn’t it?

This site has the patterns arranged in 8 garment types:

pattern 3

and there are sub types within each garment type. Additionally you may look up patterns by the maker, by decade, by season and even look at old video footage concerning patterns. There are also links to other style sites, style news, top ten lists and more. This site should interest anyone interested in sewing in general, but vintage sewing in particular.
