Vintage patterns from the 50s and 60s

I fell in love with vintage patterns after rediscovering sewing. I love the elegance of the envelope illustrations and I especially loved evening wear.

This shop reflects the designs I love, many are designer or couturier patterns. Being from Australia, we have limited access to vintage patterns, so I am very selective about the designs I sell. I think it's a small but lovely range.

You'll also find Sew Indigo on facebook where I post little vintage tid bits, news about new listings and inspiration boards. Find me here:-

    A few years ago, I rediscovered sewing. On diving back in I found a fabulous world of sewing vintage styled clothes and vintage patterns. I started this shop to sell a collection of elegant vintage patterns, mostly 50s and 60s evening wear.

At Vespertine Vintage Patterns, I take pride in all goods sold whether handmade by me or vintage items sourced from elsewhere. I believe in providing the highest quality service and appreciate any constructive feedback.

I love vintage sewing notions and vintage patterns especially from the 50s and 60s but love anything I find from the 1930s and 40s. I'm combining this interest with improving my sewing skills in this area.
