What’s New In Repro Patterns

by Andrea

As I continue to try really hard to think about spring (as it’s still so cold here!), I am thinking about new pieces for my spring wardrobe.  I was browsing the big-name pattern collections to see what’s new, and they’ve all got some great new vintage reproduction patterns – here’s some of my faves!

Repro1

 

Any brides to be out there?  It’s usually quite impossible to find vintage bridal gown patterns in anything other than teeny tiny sizes – but Butterick has now brought back this one – so you can look like a bride straight out of the 50’s.  Gorgeous!

I really like this pattern from Vogue.  So elegant, yet I think it would actually be really comfortable to wear.

Time to get ready for the beach!  This is another pattern style that only ever seems to be in teeny tiny sizes in vintage – so it is fantastic that Simplicity has brought it back!  I personally like view A a lot.

Now, this one really excites me – Burda (who is my favourite pattern brand) has gotten on to the vintage bandwagon as well. Their current vintage offerings are definitely more 70’s styles (which I personally love).  I definitely forsee myself making skirt A for the summer.

Another one from Burda’s vintage collection – I really really like these tops a lot, and they would be easy to make.  I forsee view B in my future here!

And finally, one for the men.  This isn’t strictly a reproduction pattern, but it is the perfect pattern for making those awesome retro bowling style shirts.  I’ve ordered this one, so it’s definitely going to be in my hubby’s future!

Any of you starting to plan some retro additions to your spring wardrobes?

    It’s nice they are bringing vintage patterns back. Last summer I was desperate to find a halter top pattern, and though I seemed to look and look, couldn’t find one to save my life. I certainly couldn’t find a halter top that looked decent on me in any store!

      I have had a hard time finding a decent halter top pattern in the past as well – could locate vintage ones, but never in my size, and sometimes I just don’t feel like grading. The Burda one really excites me!
