I adore sewing with vintage patterns! Alas, the prices of these lovelies are going up and up. Here are some affordable vintage patterns from the 1940s currently for sale on etsy. (I'm not affiliated with any of these etsy sellers. I just thought the patterns were cute!)
Simplicity 4775 Size 14 What a darling jumper and blouse pattern! And they're quite fun for separates.
Laura Wheeler Mail Order #4832 Size 14 Isn't this just darling! I love the plaid and bow combination. Mail order patterns tend to go for less than Big 4 patterns and I'm not sure why because they are so cute.
Hollywood 1165 Size 16 Aren't these blouses fabulous! This one is missing the cuff piece, but that's easy to draft or you could use the sleeve from another 40s pattern.
Simplicity 2467 Waist 24 Evening dress patterns often go for loads but this skirt with cummerbund is a great evening option for a bargain. I'd love to whip up the one with the chevron.
Simplicity 1526 Bust 44 This classic dress pattern is oh so 40s! It'd be a great addition to any wardrobe.
McCall 5330 Size 14 I love all of the gathers! And the pockets! Swoon! If only it included the little blue tilt hat too!
So you hunt for the budget patterns on etsy? Or do you prefer to pay big bucks for those special patterns?
