Her video came at the perfect time and has some really great tips. I forgot to mention in the video, but Im also working on make a pair of 1940s inspired jeans. . Because that dress is what started my loveand appreciation for vintage styles and vintage sewing patterns. . So I went through the costume department patterns (donated from people in the community) and found a pattern I loved from the late 50s/early 60s. . I hit the fabric stores and ended up picking a Walmart clearance fabric (1.50/yard) and set to work. . What pieces do you think I should be on the look out for next? . I felt like I needed an occasion, and how often does a 1950s/60s occasion come up?!? . I tried to start by focusing on basics white/off white tops, skirts, trousers, etc. . So, how does one make the transition from skinny jeans and t-shirts to vintageby hitting the thrift store! . I love my teal dress, but I wanted to have more than one vintage item to wear. . It was a truly interesting time in history and the fashions were so flattering. . I made a video showing (almost) all of the vintage inspired pieces I have already collected, along with my plans for a few more handmade items. . Around the start of summer I found a channel on called. Then I started thinking, why should I have to have an excuse or a reason to wear something that makes me feel pretty and happy?!? . She is a lovely gal who wears amazing 1940s vintage and vintage reproduction clothing daily. So why the 9 year old story?!? . BTW Im still kicking myself years later for not writing down the pattern brand and number that I used. Angela Clayton posted a video about her journey of venturing into vintage. .
