I strive to learn something new about vintage clothing every day and that usually includes leafing through old catalogs and vintage magazines as well as browsing through the thousands of vintage sewing patterns online. These vintage 1930s sewing patterns are all from Etsy and really illustrate the gorgeous frocks that many women made at a time when mass produced clothing wasn't the norm.
My sewing skills are very limited to mending seams, sewing on buttons, and fixing little repairs. My mother on the other hand is an amazing seamstress and could whip up one of these dresses (without a pattern!) in a day. It's really quite amazing that my Mom is so skilled with clothing construction and I am just learning how to sew straight seams.
