March 5, 2014What’s New In Repro Patterns
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!
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?
