Is fabric from 1984 vintage? Does that make me vintage?

September 21, 2010

Hi Sew Retro! My name is Rebecca and I’m new to the Sew Retro team.  I’m a 26 year old sewer and crafter, owner of the cutest dog Pearl, and am starting at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising to study Fashion Design in a few weeks.  I love vintage patterns and have collected quite a few.  Love vintage fabric too.  I guess my first post for Sew Retro will be about my new PJs!

I used baby Disney character fabric from 1984 to make PJs.  Is the fabric considered vintage yet? The pattern is new though.  I hope you like the fabric as much as I do.  I think its really silly.

Pardon the wrinkles. 

For more pictures, visit my blog at UglyCute Designs.  I also post about vintage finds, patterns, etc.  When I finally make up one of my awesome retro patterns, I’ll be sure to share! Thanks!!

  1. 25 years makes it vintage and 100 makes an antique. Anything else is retro or classified by the era. Like "grunge", "mod" or "90's" etc…

    However, people play fast and loose with both the words antique and vintage. You pj's are adorable and yes, vintage fabric!
