I Heart Vintage Patterns and Illustrations

vintageI have a stack of dusty fashion magazines from the 1960s that I keep in my design studio for inspiration. There’s just something something about that era!  I guess you could say I’m a bit of a collector of mid-century nostalgia.

I stumbled across this treasure at the 2013 Denver Modernism Show.  A vendor had a box full of vintage patterns I just couldn’t pass up.  This particular one is from 1962!

I love how the fashion illustration reflects the style of the times with the girls’ perfectly-coiffed hair and white gloves. It’s like a little time capsule.

Do you have any favorite vintage patterns or fashion illustrations?  I’d love to see them!
