Vintage Sewing Patterns Online
You know, those loose fitting tops with elastic around the neck and sleeve hem. So comfortable you could sleep in them.
I probably made 20 tops from that old pattern over the last 30 years.
It was an older design and I liked the way it was made. Very simple. Four pieces. I could whip a blouse together in an half hour.
I had it for years and eventually transferred it to pellon because the paper- pattern was tattered and falling apart. I think that was my downfall…
On one of those days while crafting in a rush, I grabbed that pellon peasant blouse pattern by mistake and stuffed a set of Rooster pot holders. Egad! As soon as I had cut, stuffed and sewn those pot holders, I knew those Roosters had ate my last Peasant Top Blouse.
I didn’t even remember the pattern number, yet I knew it existed. I’d worn Peasant Tops for the last 40 years.
I searched Etsy, Ebay, Ecrater, Artfire… to no avail. I found similar patterns but not MY old pattern.
Actually it sounds quite ridiculous that I would worry about it when I have 6 rows of filing cabinets in our extra bedroom with something near 1400 vintage sewing patterns.
But my predicament got even better. In my angst for that darn pattern, or at least a top like that old pattern I finally went to Amazon and typed in: Vintage Peasant Top!
Voila! I thought I was in heaven when the perfect Peasant top Blouse popped up and I hit BUY without a glance at my Budget. And even better than that…
I know, huh, couldn’t get much better, but it did!
The next thing to pop up was my oldest, best Vintage Peasant Top Sewing Pattern like the one I’d worn for 40 years! Now this brought tears! For many reasons.
