Fashion is a cycle, everything comes back into style - we've compiled here our favorite retro and vintage inspired patterns here. From bow blouses to fifties' dresses, these retro fashions will have you feeling fabulous.
So ladylike...this satin blouse features a shawl-like collar that finishes in a wrap. This style was first shown in 1955. For a striking collar update, cut the collar pattern piece in a contrast colour fabric.
Swing right into summer – totally possible with this shaped dress. Extravagent ruffles at the neckline are flattering as well as shape a sort of small sleeve. A fabric belt and a wide panel skirt beautifully shape the figure.
The deep neckline and inlaid pleats with the wide matching belt are for more than just elegant details. They come together to shape a dreamy hourglass silhouette, as well.
Inlaid pleats along the neckline and a curvy horizontal seam gives a highlight at the decolleté, while the waist panel and belt softly shape the silhouette – a true masterpiece!
Wide-cut shorts with pleats, wide cuffs and a paper bag silhouette high waistline. Sew a matching belt, or wear with one from your closet.
A simple and purely confident style with deep, integrated pleats along the sleeve scythe that shape the boulé back jacket with its rounded neckline for lots of volume in back.
Elaborate and worth every minute! This dress is not only distinguished with its modern romantic fabric choice, but also by the couture draping at the neckline and waist. This is a true masterpiece!
So much fashion love here. The shaping heart neckline sits softly for a dreamy decolleté, per-fectly placed darts set the figure in its best light and the removable sash is oh-so-swoon-worthy. You need to sew this one!
This is where the "All American Style" poster girl from the 1970s comes through. This dress is closed up to the round neckline and the cut tie straps ensures the waist is the emphasis.
Tight-fitting, form-fitting bandeau top with two side seams. Looks fantastic with high waisted wide skirts and is a great summer companion.
Clearly, Audrey Hepburn will be forever in our mind's eye with the little black dress. Her "Sabrina" style was a fun mix of sweet bow straps, a deep back neckline and a swinging skirt panel – just as we have done here.
You get the beach feeling right away – even if you wear it at home sitting on the balcony. This fun romper with its lace trim along the edges and a smocked waist is one that is sure to bring the good mood element!
