Thank you vintage girl for doing these vintage patterns, I love the 20s 30s and 40s and because of you I became a fan of 1800s also.

Just gorgeous! I cut this paper pattern last night and was thrilled with the quality of the paper--not too heavy, not too light (picky detail, I know, but I like good paper for patterns). It is clear and easy-to-read. Also, the seller could not be sweeter!! This is my new favorite pattern source. :)

This pattern arrived in some of the most charming packaging I think I've ever received an Etsy order of any kind in. The pattern is very easy to follow, even for a historical-sewing-newbie like myself; it has clear instructions and diagrams of how the various pattern pieces fit together into the finished garment, both of which I've found EXTREMELY helpful. It's really been a joy to work with!! So far I've only finished the mock-up, and I'm going to have to adapt the skirt pattern a bit to fit me better before I can move forward, but I'm expecting that to go easily and I'm super excited to see how the whole thing looks when it's completed!! 😁

I love my vintage pattern. It arrived quickly, was wrapped beautifully, and most importantly-the instructions for constructing the garment appear to be very straight forward and easy to understand. I am looking forward to sewing my jumper !
