I think we are most excited about Vintage May because we LOVE vintage. Like, really love. Like, we have been hoarding collecting vintage patterns since we both began to seriously sew again (going on 4+ years) and our stashes are pretty hefty. Hefty enough that a new shelf had to be purchased in the last couple of months to hold them all. And vintage fabric…..well, don’t even get us started on that addiction. It is a hoarding problem too!
Ok, back to vintage patterns—that’s why we are here, right?
We have patterns from the 1940’s through some super fabulous ones from the 80’s and 90’s–but we love them all and have sewn with quite a few of them. Vintage patterns were the key to both Liz and I becoming better sew-ers….they really have some great techniques in them!
And today’s outfits are no exception, both are made from vintage patterns and some awesome vintage curtain panels that we found on a recent trip to Savers (cue the Sound of Music here!).
