Vintage Sewing

Pattern giveaway!

May 24, 2010

Hi folks,

I’m Ali, I’ve been a longtime lurker and haven’t gotten around to introducing myself because I’ve yet to sew up any retro patterns since I joined, but I look forward to contributing to the community this summer. I’ve got a retro-swimsuit, high-waisted shorts and cigarette pants planned! 🙂 I get so much inspiration from all of you.

I caught last week’s giveaway post, which included 80s patterns, so I wanted to let you know I’m also giving away some 80s patterns. I’m moving and de-stashing, please take what you like and sew ’em up and share your creations with us! Dive into the 80s resurgence with these lovelies!

How about this pattern from 1981?

Or these from 1982?

And 1983…

And these Vogue American Designer Calvin Klein patterns:

Sixties-esque scivvies?

Sizes and info here.

  1. Alas, I was a teenager in the 80s, my body was the best it was ever going to be, and the clothes were so boxy and shapeless! At least these patterns reassure me that I wasn't the only one hiding my shape away back then. Thanks for the flashback!
