Good Saturday to you all Lovelies! As promised in my last post, here are some of the 1980s patterns I have found that are so similar to the 1920s fashion that it is a bit spooky. Being a DIY gal and a thrifty sort of spirit, I love being able to take something that is on the
cheap inexpensive side and using it to make something neat-o! Most of these patterns I found at thrift stores for $0.25 - $0.99!!!
Now, there are some fabulous pattern sites that have recreated wonderful 1920s style patterns...I have purchased a few of them, so if you would like to check them out, here are the links...
Burda Style even has a set of PDF files if you can do PDF files...I can't, they stress me out, but here is the link...
You can also find wonderful vintage 1920s patterns on both eBay and etsy! Just type in "vintage 1920s patterns" and some really fabulous patterns will come up. I purchased one that I cannot wait to make!
I spent some time the last couple of days pouring over my 1920s Fashion board on Pinterest, creating new boards that pair outfits that look very similar to some of the patterns I have in my collection so I could share them with you! Some of the dress inspirations will require a little modification of the pattern to achieve the correct look, but they are very minor! Well, except for getting rid of the HUGE 1980s shoulders and shoulder pads...but that is an easy fix!
I have more patterns in my collection that I will hopefully get around to matching 1920s outfits to in new Pinterest Boards...but for right now, I am Pinterest-ed out!!
Have a glorious day my friends!
Wow - you just blew my mind! I never would have thought that 80's patterns were useful for anything, but now I'm looking at these things in a whole new way. Thanks for taking the time to do this! Your pinterest boards to go with each pattern are absolute genius!ReplyDelete
Awe thank you Jen! I just figured that if I saw this and thought it was a neat thing that perhaps others would get inspiration from it! Thank you for your wonderful compliment! It makes the time I took to do it very worth while!Delete
Thanks for sharing the links to various 20s patterns and your pinterest. 1920s is on my to do list this year.ReplyDelete
You are so very welcome Antoinette! I can't wait to see what you come up with this year!Delete
