83,500 Vintage Sewing Patterns

July 13, 2017 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

The sewing community takes care of its own! Thanks to a collaborative effort, 83,500 vintage sewing patterns from Vogue, McCalls, Butterick, Simplicity, and others have been put into an online database, viewable by the public. Each look is at least 25 years old, and is organized by decade, garment type and designer. If you want to recreate a Dior look from the 50s, this is a great place to start! Then pick out some scrumptious fabric to work with--we have fabulous new silks, brocades and wools in our brick-and-mortar and online stores!
