Vintage Sewing Patterns

Hi, I'm Annette. I came to collecting vintage patterns via Victorian costumes and my collection spans the 1860s to the 1960s, mostly German and French pattern magazines. I'm happy to share them through this wiki as inspiration - fashion details seems to have been more varied and creative in previous decades compared to today. Domestic magazines to me are like little time capsules, reflecting not just the fashions of the day but also interests, values, political climate, and more. It's like getting a glimpse into everyday life.
