Original 1930s dress patterns can be collectable and a fashion study resource as well as essential for making yourself some amazing outfits from the depression era.
There are so many original 1930s patterns to choose from. The styles of the were timeless and feminine and look great on everyone. But the ladies those days had tiny waists, which most of us these days can only dream of. So many of the original vintage garments won't fit us. That's where the sewing machine comes in!
The curvy shapes of the dresses of the 1930s are flattering for all women, and emphasise the lovely hourglass shape. So why not create your own made to measure garment for that special occasion?
Enlist the help of your mum, grandma, aunt or friendly neighbour and learn something new. Sewing your own is a skill that will be invaluable and means that you can certainly wear something that no-one else will have. Gone are the days of turning up to that special event and finding someone else in the same dress.
You'll also save money as original vintage clothes are getting very expensive these days, and you wouldn't want to spoil them by actually wearing them!
