While today sewing isn’t something everyone does, for those who still enjoy it, sewing patterns really come in handy. If you’re someone who loves vintage things, well, you’re going to love this news— Vintage Patterns Wiki has recently released more than 83,500 sewing patterns of pre-1992 for download.
Here, you can find pretty much everything from the Dynasty-inspired suits and Betty Draper’s Frocks and white gloves. You’ll also find classic 1985 boys’ Reefer Suits and fly-free short trousers.
Chances are you’ve at least once in your life visited a fabric store with your mom or grandmother to get supplies for making an outfit.
Growing up with my grandma made me learn all kinds of quilts, coats, ‘nap mats,’ and other things of the sort. Picking fabrics out and helping her put things together were the highlights of the earliest years of my childhood.
But today, things have really changed, and you don’t have to travel to your favorite fabric store to look for sewing patterns to use on your next project. You only need to browse online, and you’ll get everything you need.
And the Vintage Patterns Wiki platform has every sewing pattern you could ever wish for.
All of the patterns in this database are from the year 1990 and before. They include looks from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.
Whether looking for a costume to make for your kids or simply wanting to try out a new ‘older’ styled outfit, this database is a great place to dig through.
On this Wiki site, you’ll find everything from dresses, pants, bathing suits, formal outfit, to even your ‘high-class’ evening wear.
There’s something for everyone here, that’s for sure. You can browse based on particular designs or filter search results based on the decade.
Personally, the ‘seasonal’ patterns are some of my favorites, but honestly, the more you look at these sewing patterns, the more you’re going to want to get your thimble ready to pop things into gear.
The aim of this database is not only to share these patterns with all who want them but to also bring forth an idea of fashion throughout the years.
The website lets you find the perfect cocktail dress or even dive into Peter Pan collar styled wear if you’re feeling adventurous.
