Do you find it hard to find something stylish to wear these days?  Would you love to have a gorgeous 1930s dress, but can't find anything in the vintage shops to fit?  Why not make your own?

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? 

Not Great at Sewing?

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!

Unleash your creativity and sew yourself a unique and fabulous 1930s vintage dress.  Scroll down to get yourself an easy pattern to work from. 

Still convinced you can't sew, then search for an original, collectable period garment from my 1930s dress page. Otherwise keep on going down this page!

Sometimes you can find patterns in your local charity shop or even in auctions, antique shops and markets.  Have a good old rummage.  Otherwise, there are always plenty online. 

Happy Sewing!
