We Sew Vintage features sewing projects created from vintage sewing patterns dating from 1920-1988. While we originally planned to limit our vintageness to pre-1970 patterns, the truth is…1988 was 25 years ago!! If it was a car it would qualify for a vintage tag! Soo… Welcome to We Sew Vintage, 1920-1988!
Everyone who sews vintage is welcome!
If you would like to contribute to We Sew Vintage, please read through the following guidelines, then email me at jemimabean at gmail dot com. Please include your name, a link to a current blog (if you have one), and a short message about why you’d like to join We Sew Vintage.
Contributing Author Guidelines:
- We Sew Vintage will be used exclusively for projects created from vintage patterns dating from 1920-1988. While we love to look at vintage pattern books, pattern covers, vintage fabrics & trims, etc., at this time the blog will be reserved for actual sewing projects. In-progress projects are always welcome!
- Half the fun is seeing the garments! You must have the ability to upload pictures to your posts. Please use another photo hosting service (such as Photobucket or Flickr) for storing your photos. WordPress is very user friendly! You have the ability of inserting a photo from another hosting site quite easily. If you need help finding or using a photo hosting service, let me know!
- Please limit photos of vintage patterns to a related project post. We love a vintage pattern/book haul as much as the next person, believe me! However, the purpose of this blog is for it to be a place to see these wonderful treasures being used.
- Vintage patterns have a wealth of interesting (and in some cases obsolete) sewing and tailoring techniques. It would be lovely if you would share these priceless tidbits when you encounter them in your projects. (This is just a suggestion, if you’re so inclined! In fact, we might compile a page of vintage sewing techniques at some future time.)
- Spread the love! If you know of a vintage sewing blogger that you think would be a great fit for our blog, pass on our link and invite him/her to join!
2. “Big 4” vintage re-issues (Vintage Vogue, for example)
3. Modern patterns that are created from a tracing of an original vintage pattern, or generally considered “historical patterns”. Examples: Sense and Sensibility, EvaDress, Decades of Style, NewVintageLady, etc.
