During 2015, I, Emily of Emily's Vintage Visions, will sew up at least six of my vintage or reproduction sewing patterns.
- Simplicity 2823
- Simplicity 4161
- Hollywood 1530
- Vogue 9010
- Advance 8296
- One additional 1940s pattern - not sure which one yet
Here is a look at what I'm working on now and patterns that I know I will be using in the new future. My current project is a hooded jacket using Simplicity 2823. I'm using some lovely wool plaid purchased years ago from the Dorr Mill Store. (Sorry for the crummy photos, I just snapped this quickly with my phone.)
I'm working on two different blouses using Simplicity 4161 and Hollywood 1530. (You can see my first version of Hollywood 1530 here.)
I'll be using Vogue 9010 for an event coming up in March. I just picking up some amazing silk from Delectable Mountain Cloth. I'm also thinking of using McCall 5632 for another 1920s event later in the summer but haven't quite decided so I wont count it for now.
I used Advance 8296 for my wedding reception dress. It has some fitting issues to work out but I like the look of the finished dress so I'm willing to give it another go. I'm planning to use this for my birthday dress this spring.
What vintage patterns do you plan to sew this year?
