Vintage sewing – 1930s evening gowns

I love the style and sophistication of 1930s fashion and have amassed a large collection of sewing pattern imagery from the era on Pinterest and thought it would be nice to share some of them here. The evening gowns of the time are my favourite with their elegant lines, bias cuts and daring open backs. I would dearly love to get my hands on some of these beauties!

Summer is here again…

Yes, summer is here again…for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere anyway. You wouldn’t know it was summer today here in Perth though as it is currently 16C and raining! Just the way I like it 😉 Here is a group of wonderful old Aussie travel prints from the 1920s and 30s. Of course, the graphic designer in me can’t help love the Art Deco influence in some of them. Enjoy.
