New Vintage Patterns from Etsy!

22 June 2010 No Comment

Look what arrived in the mail today! I purchased 7 vintage patterns on Etsy last Thursday after searching through more than 2,000 patterns in my size until the wee hours of the morning (I know I have issues). I didn’t think the patterns would arrive so soon, so I was pleasantly surprised to find four patterns in my mailbox.

I am in love with Vogue 6258 (1964 dress). The bat wing sleeves are fabulous and I love the skirt’s center pleat! I think this would be very chic and elegant in a pretty satin fabric. Perhaps eggplant or a jewel tone color.

Unlike most of the contemporary patterns I purchase, I actually like all 3 views featured in M3206 (70’s halter dress/tunic and pants).

I’ll probably make S3635 (1973 halter) in a 70′ print fabric. I think I’ll skip the bell bottoms, but the maxi dress is cute, too.

I was also excited to open S8648 (my envelope is much more tattered than the one below). I ordered this 60’s Grecian Goddess Mini Dress pattern from Kay’s Reflections Vintage Jewelry. I’m not feeling the long-sleeved version at all, but I love the collar on the sleeveless dress. The suggested fabric types include soft cottons and blends, silks, challis, cotton sateen, crepe, lightweight wools and blends, matte jersey, and double knits.

What color and fabric do you think would look best?
