Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Vintage Sewing Patterns

So how many of you sewers out there that make clothes remember all the old styles? I use to make all my own clothes and my children's clothes when they were young. I don't sew clothes anymore as quilting took over my life. LOL! :)

I was looking at some vintage patterns on Etsy the other day and it brought back so many memories of all the "vintage" styles and I thought maybe you all would like to see some of them too so I thought I would show you a few of them today. Now I am probably going to age myself on these as I do remember making and wearing some of these styles.. :)

Ok....I actually do remember making these dresses and yes....wearing these dresses. I remember they were fairly easy to make...I think.....anyway agesanderas has this pattern if you would like it. 

Remember these easy summer dresses that LadyJanetvintage has the pattern for! I do! I actually use to make wrap around skirts like this also. They were so easy to make and comfortable to wear too. 

Look what I found! There are so many tote bag patterns now-a-days and it seems everyone has tote bags now (and yes....I have them in my shop too. :) ) that I was surprised to find a pattern from the 1980's for tote bags! If you want to make one in this style OnceUponAnHeirloom has the pattern. Maybe you can give it a try. :)

Ok....so how many of you made your children's costumes for Halloween or the school play.....(my hand is going up!) I made a few of them. One Halloween I made pumpkin costumes for my kids....boy that was a nightmare! :) Well if you made them for your kids and want to try them for your grandchildren or your children here is a pattern for Raggedy Ann and Andy from kidschannette if you want to try it. 

So this was a few of the patterns that I found as I walked down the memory lane of sewing. Makes me wish my grandchildren were little again and then maybe I would take the plunge to try sewing a costume again....NOT! LOL! :) :)

Happy Sewing!
