Vintage patterns

user-163194 | Posted in Talk With Us on

In your latest issue – page 29, paragraph 3, it says “we chose a charmingly simple vintage Vogue pattern (no.6934)”.

Can you tell me how vintage it is?  I am looking hard and not finding it…


Thanks, Tess

    Vogue has a line of "vintage" patterns in their newest pattern book. You may be able to see it at http://www.sewingpatterns.com

    Later: I read the article and the author says it is from her personal pattern archives which means that it is in her collection and is probably not available now.

      I feel it only fair to add a note to the subject of the availability of vintage patterns. In 2007, I sent out an SOS on Gatherings for a '71 Vogue skirt pattern without much hope of ever getting it but some very nice person took the trouble to find  http://www.lanetsliving.net for me and hey presto there was my pattern! I ordered it straight away and it came across the Atlantic in no time at all, beautifully packed and never used although 38 years old - is this some kind of a record?  A few weeks ago I received a news letter from [email protected] and nostalgia kicked in in a big way - there were all my favourite Vogue Couturier patterns of the past, many of which I had made. She seems to have a huge range of patterns of all the brands as well as patterns for knitting, crochet, crafts, etc. Based on my experience I would highly reccommend such an invaluable service.

        Thanks for the information, although it wasn't me searching for the pattern. I did try the links, one cannot be found and the other is an email address. Is there a website?Are the patterns from 1970 considered "vintage"?

          It may have been a "slip of a click" so now I have the printed leaflet in front of me and it is http://www.lanetzliving.net - I have no trouble opening it so I must have typed it in incorrectly - the range of patterns they have over several decades continues to amaze me.

          There have been many enquiries lately about finding patterns so maybe this information will be of use to other searchers although I seem to have posted it to you in error. Anyway it gave me the opportunity to give the correct address. The site invites enquiries - hence the [email protected]

          Thank you for thaking the trouble to reply.

            OH WOW - I still have some of those, and I have only done page one of the listings. I still have my designer wedding dress pattern from 1957. ..Givenchy as I remember. With a little tweaking, a lot of these could be easily wearable today. Thanks for the site.

            I have a number of vintage patterns and as far as I can tell very few show any date on them.  You may be able to tell the date by the fashion.
