vintage sewing patterns


, , , , , ,

My mother lives in Norrtälje, today me and my daughters went there to visit. Of course I had to go to the antique shop nearby. And it was a fortunate trip, I found a small box filled with old sewing patterns. Cheap too!


Two french patterns, Les patrons couture and Les patrons de luxe, and one swedish, Stil. I have a red fabric which is perfect for the pencil skirt.

a moral dilemma


, , , , ,

And again I find my self being troubled by a moral dilemma. Here it is:
I love the fashion from the 1930′s to the 1940′s. It is a war time fashion, both influenced by the military look and a product of the shortage of fabric.
So is it morally right to like this fashion which is a war-look. Is it so, that I end up romanticising a war time or is it possible to enjoy the fashion separated from the context?
What I like about the style is, truly troubeling, the broad shoulders, rough fabrics, dark colors – all that one can associate with the war.
What are your thoughts about this?
