May 1, 2012Mid-Mod Menswear!
So often when we think about sewing retro, it’s usually the lovely ladies dresses and other patterns that we think of sewing. But, there’s tons of excellent menswear patterns still kicking around out there that can give a great retro look for the man of today. I was poking around on Etsy (because my stash of patterns isn’t anywhere near big enough, hah!) and found these:
From seller HoneyBearsCloset:
My opinion might be biased, since I live in Alberta, land of cowboys, but I think there is nothing as timeless as a good western shirt. This one’s even got transfers to do the embroidery as well!
From seller Denisecraft:
Looking for some classic Don Draper or Pete Campbell-esqe pajamas? Look no further! This is definitely a very classic pajama style.
From seller 316faith:
Vests are still pretty much the hottest thing in menswear right now, and many of the ones in the store have a very vintage feel. This pattern would make up a vest that’s right on point today.
From seller MaddieModPatterns:
I know at first glance, the head to toe plaid might look a bit much! However the style of the jacket is really classic, and would look fantastic today.
From seller GreatScott:
A sportcoat is definitely a bit more of an ambitious project, but if you’re liking the look of the plaid sportcoats the men have been wearing on Mad Men this season, this is a great way to get the look and have it fit well!
I hope this gets your creative juices flowing, readers! Do any of you have any menswear projects planned?
