A vintage goldmine

Some of you may already be aware of this as it’s been shared a lot in recent weeks, but I recently came across an incredible resource for vintage sewing patterns and it’s incredible.

It’s called the Vintage Pattern Wikiaย and is completely fan made, but there are thousands of pattern illustrations for you to browse. Currently there are 96,000 images on the site along with some archive film footage. It is primarily an image resource but some of the patterns even include links to sellers of original and reproduction versions! There is an free app on both the Apple and Google Play stores to download for browsing this archive too, although it doesn’t offer anything different to the desktop version.


As a resource for pattern illustrations this site is invaluable for those of you who want to pattern cut something inspired by one of these designs or just want to check out some beautiful sassy ladies!
