Do you enjoy sewing? I learned to sew with my Mom when I was growing up, and I enjoyed sewing in home ec in high school. Sorry to say, I have not kept up with sewing clothes, although it is something I would love to pick up again at some point. (I do still enjoy embroidery.)
I have started finding and listing vintage sewing patterns the past few months. Most of the ones I have found are from the 1960's - 1970's. It is a lot of fun looking at the patterns and the different fashions that were popular. I think it would be great fun to sew using the older patterns (maybe with some vintage fabric and buttons, too??).
I've started a little "vintage patterns" department at Etsy, and I will be adding more regularly. You can find the patterns here: vintage sewing patterns at Birdhouse Books.
