Seven Sewing Patterns
I got some more sewing patterns; some of the patterns I didn’t see dates on, so I just ordered them in increasing costs.
The first is a dress and jacket pattern from 1966. I like the simplicity of the garments. I like the drawings of the dressed-up women.
The second is a wrap dress from 1974. It’s a half-size pattern for petite women. I think this looks like a fun and easy dress to make.
Next up is a skirt pattern that looks like it’s from the 1970s. The main reason I got it is because of the pockets. I’ve only done non-visible pockets and thought this might be a good pattern to try different pockets.
This Pucci dress pattern (that looks to be from the 1970s) is super simple. I like the ease of the dress.
I avoid knits, but I liked this shawl collar blouse and dress pattern from 1980.
Okay, when I saw this Oscar de la Renta top and skirt pattern, it clearly screamed 1980s. That top immediately reminded me of a Members Only jacket. But I think if it was a bit slimmer in the fitting, it could be pretty cute. Although I think the bow version is a bit odd.
Finally, my mom gave me this skirt and cape pattern from 1995. I’ve never had a cape before, but I think it could be fun to have one.
