Vintage sewing patterns designed specifically for snow and ice are hard to come by (especially patterns for men's clothing). Here's a few that I'm loving at the moment:
1. 1950's ski jacket and pants, purchase as instant download at Mrs Depew Vintage, 2. 1930's Hollywood pattern 1082 for children's snowsuit from Midvale Cottage, 3. 1940's winter vest pattern from Mrs Depew Vintage, 4. Simplicity 2622 vintage skating pattern from 1948 from She'll Make You Flip
Simplicity 3973: hats, scarves and mittens and matching dog coats
from Stitching by Numbers Etsy shop
Alas, I don't have a dog and I think our sweet 'Echo' cat would be none too thrilled to be wearing a coat but if she did, I would totally make a matching hat and scarf!
Warm Weather Sewing:
There's so many amazing vintage swimsuit sewing patterns, here's a few of my favourites, I especially like the side buttoned 1940s shorts:
6. Simplicity 3234 1950s swimsuit and coverup pattern from Grey Dog Vintage, 7. Simplicity 1950's men's swim trunks pattern from Patterns from the Past Etsy shop, 8. Plus size (or any size) 1950's swimsuit pattern from Embonpoint Vintage 9. McCall 6036 1940's swimsuit and shorts pattern from the Fragolina Etsy shop
So are you sewing (or dreaming of sewing) for your current climate or planning ahead for the next season?
