Vintage Sewing Patterns for Holiday Shopping

It's that time of year again. People fighting over the great deals that there are never enough of to go around. Now that most people shop online, it's not as bad as it was when I was younger. The key to shopping on those days is to wear comfortable clothes and, by all means, comfortable shoes! Here are some suggestions on what to wear when you hit the malls this week (or your couch).

Here is one for the mall that you can find at Revival Designed Patterns

This 1940s-day dress Pattern number 0766 has great princess seams for a flattering

silhouette and, this dress can be worn with less than spike heels! I love the triangular pockets.

Can you see yourself shopping in this dress?

Pull a warm coat over it and you are ready to hit the stores!

Wear this 1938 coat and all eyes will be on you! Make it with or without a faux fur collar. The knee length coat has princess seams making you look slender and tall. If this is the coat you have been looking for, go to Ginny's Vintage Patterns and find this 1938 Coat Pattern

Whether shopping at home or out with the crowds, you will look pulled together in this jumpsuit pattern from

Vogue 9479 is a very stylish jumpsuit with a surplice bodice, pleated pants with tapered legs, and a choice of sleeves.

This is more my style than the previous picks. It comes with a raglan sleeve jacket and pants! Comfortable, neat, and tidy, practical (I've been accused of being too practical more than once), and it looks good! Vogue 5120 is available at Mrs. Depew Vintage.



For the male online shopper who wants to stay... casual, Candy Goeller Patterns on eBay has

Advance 4439 in Stock. This is one of the most popular men's boxer patterns, so it won't last long!

This versatile pattern works for just about everyone. Whether you like skirts or pants, it has an option. Vogue 0995 can be found at Alice Valentine's Patterns and Fabrics on Etsy. I love the shirt jacket look! Casual and pulled together.

Donna Karan never fails to design a classic. This coat falls into that category! Vogue 1365 is a knee length belted wrap coat with notched lapels. Interested?

Visit Kinsey Sue Patterns on Etsy for more details.

Going for the "Online Only" Deals? Get comfortable! This loungewear pattern, New Look 6521 is a great look for couch shopping. All sizes are included from 8 to 18 as the pattern is Uncut. Visit Redcurlzs on Etsy for details!

This would work whether you were going to the store or shopping online. Casual and Smart. 1970s "conservative". The turtleneck will keep you warm and the miniskirt will keep you stylish. Choose the pants if the weather where you live is a little worse than Southern California. (currently sunny and 78 degrees although very windy)

Simplicity 5254 is on sale at The Gingham Life through Thanksgiving Weekend.
