Everyone else, don’t fret if you didn’t win because your next chance to snag some gorgeous patterns starts right now….


This week we’re looking at the Simplicity Vintage range. I’ve picked out pictures of some of my personal favorites in these pictures but there are tons more on the Simplicity site….aprons, baby layettes, jackets, dresses, doll clothes and more.


It’s so awesome to see these often very hard to find (and single sized) vintage beauties reissued as multisize patterns that fit a wider range. Make sure you check out the full Vintage Simplicity range because this is a pick your prize giveaway – you decide what you get.


The winner will receive three patterns from Simplicity’s vintage range. As always on WeSewRetro, this giveaway is open worldwide – no matter where you live you are eligible to win.

To enter, simply pop over to the Vintage section of the Simplicity site and decide which 3 patterns you just have to have. Come back here and let me know in the comments and when you win, those three patterns will be your prize!

The lucky winner will be selected at random this weekend (June 26th) so don’t miss out – go make your picks! 🙂

  17. Oh, wow. Sorry, I didn’t get the last pattern and love the options for this giveaway. My pattern choices are 1319, 8139 and 1278. I can’t justify buying them right now and would love any of them , let alone all of them.

    Never have I entered a giveaway… Is there such a thing as beginner’s luck?

  19. Oooh! What a great giveaway! I always look for interesting seamlines and the option for a garment to have more than one ‘option’ (turning a dress into an interesting skirt). My picks are:

    Simplicity 1587 — I’d wear the dress and make this as a skirt or peplum top.
    Simplicity 1278 – This blouse’s neckline is really interesting.
    Simplicity 1012 – I’ve always wanted to make one of these ‘cross dart’ dresses.


  20. 2154, 8130 and 1250 please! Oh shipping to Greece is so expensive! It would be divine to win this!!!! <3

  21. Ooooh! I’ve already got 1426, which I’ve made a couple of times (with plans for more) and I love it. I think I would choose 1166, 1587 (50’s in generally my favorite to wear) and either 1221 or 8127, so hard to pick!

  22. There are so many I would love, but I would have to say; 1364-Those blouses are so versatile, 8085 with the sweet ties at the back, and 1426.

  23. My favorites:
    1012 – Misses’ and Miss Plus 1960’s Vintage Dresses
    1252 – Misses’ and Miss Petite Dress or Jumper
    8051 – Misses and Plus Size Dresses

    So many beautiful patterns ^^

  24. My two teenage daughters are big fans of retro fashion so I sew for them. Simplicity patterns are no longer available in our local Fabric Land so it is a bit difficult to get them. I have Simplicity 8139, 8085 and 8050 on my wish list.

  25. I’ve been dying to try 1590 8139 and 8085! I always need more blouses and the stores in my area don’t carry simplicity any longer. It would be such a bonus to win and be able to try some Gentlemen Prefer Blondes inspired swimwear!

  26. Hard to choose, partly because I’ve already got a lot of my favourite vintage reissues! But I’d have to go with: 1155, 1012 & 1459. Thanks in advance!

  28. Oh, I would love to try out one of Simplicity’s vintage patterns! It is difficult to chose, but 8050, 1278 and 1460 all look very promising.

  29. It’s so nice of you to do this giveaway!!! I have never seen some of these patterns, and it’s nice to see that the odd one does come up in larger sizes (it’s too bad they all don’t!!!) The ones I like best are, 1166, 1356, and, 8051.

  30. 1609 is probably The only pattern I would like, that I didn’t buy In the simplicity sale a could of days ago.

  31. I would love To have pattern 8085 as well as 1460 and 1590.
    Finger cross and thanks for the give-away competition.

  32. If I could, I’d absolutely have these patterns –
    8085 – because I still long to find the perfect wrap dress pattern and I haven’t lost hope yet!
    8050 – because this reminds me of one of the most perfect dresses I owned in the very early 90s that made me feel fabulous
    8017 – because every superwoman needs a good cape!
    Cheers! 🙂

  33. I love the simple elegance of the vintage look. If I’m lucky enough to win, I would like 1155, 1459 and 1365.

  34. I would dearly love to call 1459 mine
    and owning 8051 would be divine
    Rounding off my list with 8127
    Would be my idea of sewing heaven!
