Inspired by her own mother's ability to rework hand-me-downs into lovely outfits, Karen starting sewing her own clothes as a teen in 1960. A stay at home mom for 15 years, she sewed everything from children's clothing to home accents, dance costumes and evening gowns. Returning to the work force led to the creation of tailored career gal outfits.

Karen has always been complimented for her ability to create high fashion on a low budget. She has sewn through her own finger at least once, but the outfit was worth it! Her closet is filled with clothing and shoes she hasn't gotten around to wearing yet.

Jill's favourite activity was picking out patterns and fabrics with her mom Karen and dreaming of the fabulous outfits to come. Hopeless at sewing, she used to beg Karen to finish her Home-Ec assignments (to no avail). If she wanted a new outfit, then she was relegated the tasks of pattern layout, cutting, and hand sewing buttons and hems.

We've enjoyed our treasured patterns, especially those by Vogue, collected over six decades. Some were used, and many were never used. The amount of time we had to create was often overwhelmed by our greedy imaginations! You can have fun becoming a Vogue Vixen as you use these patterns to create outfits to suit your own personal style. The choice to mix vintage with contemporary fashion makes every outfit unique.
