Vintage Sewing Gold ... guide to regrading vintage patterns

Vintage Sewing Gold … guide to regrading vintage patterns

I have previously mentioned thevintagepatternshop.com but I have to share more news with you.

On my quest to find inspiring and beautiful things to make from my stash of vintage fabric and vintage haberdashery I ordered a pattern for a 1940’s hat and clutch purse.

They arrived today and yet again the info booklet that has come with it is perfect for the translation from 1940’s speak and standards into our 21st century world.

This time however, in addition was some information on a 60 page guide that they have put together for those of us who love vintage patterns but sometime struggle with regrading to our modern day figures. The guide is in a friendly format and explains how to make the appropriate adjustments to your vintage pattern in an appropriate and professional way. WOWZA! 

Vintage sewing gold …… these can be purchased on ebay and the attached picture provides the information you need should you feel the need to reach out to the helping hand that is Sonny!

    Quite interesting – thanks for mentioning the booklet. Looked at both their ebay & web site (still transferring everything from ebay). Something like 1600 items!
