Vintage Sewing Books

Recently I’ve been on a quest for vintage sewing and patternmaking books. I really love seeing the vintage looks and illustrations.
You know in life so many things change but what’s so great about these books is that the content is ALWAYS relevant. Styles and fashions may change but the foundation of sewing, patterning, garment construction and illustration are the same. So you can buy a book from 1966 and design and construct a garment today. Here are some of the gems that I picked up. Check out Etsy to find some of your own before I scoop them up.
