Sizing Vintage Patterns:

When purchasing sewing patterns from earlier decades, it's important to consider these factors:

Sizing Discrepancies: Patterns from the 1950s and earlier were often designed with smaller waistlines and different body proportions in mind. Women's undergarments, such as girdles, were commonly worn during that era, which influenced the fit of clothing. As a result, patterns from those times may run smaller compared to contemporary sizing. It's essential to be aware of this difference and adjust accordingly.

Changing Bra Styles: Bra styles have gone through significant transformations throughout the decades. Prior to the introduction of knit fabrics, bust lines were often shaped differently, emphasizing a pointier or more separated look. Understanding the historical variations in bra styles can help you anticipate adjustments needed to achieve the desired fit and silhouette when using vintage sewing patterns.

Posture and Body Changes: Over time, our posture and body shapes have also changed. Factors like increased waistlines and alterations in overall body proportions can affect how vintage sewing patterns fit. Recognising these changes and being prepared to make adjustments will help ensure the final garment fits your unique body shape.

When working with sewing patterns from earlier decades, it's crucial to approach them with the understanding that modifications will likely be necessary. Adapting the pattern to your measurements and considering the specific undergarments and styles of the era will help you achieve the desired fit and aesthetic. Happy Sewing!


Unprinted Patterns: 

Back in the day, sewing patterns didn't have fancy printed lines. Instead, they were made of plain tissue paper with holes along the edges to show the shape of each pattern piece. Sewers had to trace the patterns onto their fabric using tracing paper or chalk. If you're working with these old-school unprinted patterns, make sure to read the instructions carefully and understand any symbols or notations they use. Take your time to trace the pattern accurately onto your fabric and use the notches as markers for matching pieces. With practice and attention to detail, you can create stunning garments using these special vintage patterns.
