Tips For Buying Vintage Patterns

One of the most important things to remember is never buy a vintage sewing
pattern according to it's size number. Over time, clothing companies have made the clothes bigger and the size numbers smaller.

The best idea is to buy the size of pattern that will fit in the most difficult to fit area. This is usually the size that corresponds to bust measurement.

There is a difference between how clothes are worn today as compared to how vintage clothing was worn. Most ladies today don't wear the foundation garments such as girdles or bras that give the perfect conical shape like in the 1950's or 60's.
Patterns from that era are fitted for ladies wearing those garments.

It is recommended to know your body measurements with and without foundation garments. Bust measurements can change with bra styles so it is important to know what will be worn underneath the finished vintage garment.
