Vintage Jackets Abound

1950 Belted Topper by Threads member, Pattern Nut.

We love the beautiful silhouettes, yummy fabrics, gorgeous details, and inspiring images of the vintage coats created and posted in our Reader’s Closet Gallery by Threadsmagazine.com member, Pattern_Nut. And, based on the great comments I see, many of our other members do too! She created the garments from a variety of vintage patterns, including McCall’s and Butterick and even shares the pattern covers for more jawdropping inspiration. Here’s a sampling of some of her gorgeous garment creations.


Post your designs here and we may feature you here or in the magazine. Keep them coming, Pattern_Nut!

    I love the 40s suits and skirts. I found a red skirt one day in the thrift store that was circular with lots of detail and the zipper sewn in the side pocket. I admire quality.
    But I cannot find a pattern for the simple office girls' hats that were worn on a slant and most had no more than a 3" brim, without much crown on top.
    We see them in the older movies and they looked so professional. I would like to try sewing one but I cannot find a pattern. Any suggestions? Virginia
