10 Timeless Details from the Threads Archives

In Threads, we've always had a love affair with the finer points of vintage garments, especially those from the 1930s and 1940s. For many years, we ran a recurring column titled "Delicious Details." Here, the Threads editors revisit the top 10 details from those columns and dig deeper to help you incorporate these gems into your own creations.

You'll first find the pattern shapes without specific dimensions -- we know you'll adjust the size to fit your body. Next, you'll find sewing tips to help you get started. All of these delectable details work in modern garments. As the saying goes, to move forward, you need to revisit the past.
