Since joining Pinterest, I am continually amazed by the wealth of beautiful vintage patterns that flash across my screen every day. They have incredible detailing and are so much more beautiful to me than any modern design. Why are they not reproducing those patterns?! It is downright cruel.
The Vogue 8875 coat is lovely, but the dress is rather banal. There is nothing actually wrong with the design, but it might as well be a modern day sheath.
The bodice details on Vogue 8874 are somewhat interesting, and to be honest, I am sure I will pick it up when Vogue patterns go on sale at my local JoAnn Fabrics. With the gloves and the chosen print, it looks very Audrey Hepburn. But it certainly does not take my breath away.
This, on the other hand . . .
How fabulous are these patterns!?!
Am I being too picky? Does anyone know why these intricate and exquisite designs are passed over? I know I sound like a broken record, but I keep hoping that someone in charge of things over at McCalls will hear me!
Pretty please, Vogue, hear my plea and start reproducing the incredibly amazing patterns, not just the standard silhouettes. And that goes for the Butterick line, too!
But do you know what I really want as a late Christmas present? Someone to reproduce the Spadea and Modes Royale line of patterns from the 1950s. Because boy, oh, boy I wish they would reproduce some of those beauties!!
Which vintage design that you have come across is your favorite?
For the moment I will settle for these. Hint, hint . . .
