News-Antique.com - Oct 25,2009 - How fortunate we are to have a century of styles at our finger tips to choose from.
Vintage sewing patterns offer us this liberating experience!
There is a revolution happening with women lately, they are tired of following
the 'latest' look. Maybe its too much watching Turner Classic Movie channel, seeing how the vintage styles flattered the figure, hiding any flaws and playing up the positives points. What ever started this revolution, a good number of women of today are instead deciding to dressing from the past be it in the 1920s, 30s, 40s,50s or 60s etc
styles, interestingly enough the clothing will not go out of fashion since its from
the past anyways! And even Vogue magazine stated that the 1940s are hot!
What a fabulous feeling to go to a party and know that in your vintage fashion style
that you had sewn or had it made by a seamstress,
can guarantee you that no one will be wearing the same dress, your entrance making outfit will turn heads. You chose the
vintage sewing pattern and the fabric, creating a one of a kind dress.
A vintage style dress, can be a great icebreaker at a party, just think of that
when you are wearing that famous Marilyn Monroe style dress from the Seven Year Itch
movie, made from the official Marilyn Monroe sewing pattern. Or in a 'Film Noir' mood, depending on if you are the 'bad' or 'good' girl choose one of the fabulous draped, shirred, or peplum styled patterns, make sure you visit our Hats Bags Patterns section for the complete look you must have the accessories, all eyes will be on you. Do you think heads will turn or you would have trouble meeting people at the party-I think not!

the pleasure of wearing the finished garment and pleasure is what fashion should be
