Vintage dressmaking patterns are pleasant and also fascinating for a few obvious reasons. Upon picking a pattern up, it is almost impossible to avoid having your imagination captured by the illustrations on their envelopes. Maggie from VintageCorePatterns has been using these patterns as a tool to develop her own individual and distinctive antique as well as vintage haute couture clothing style for quite some time.
Maggie lives a vintage life and takes a great amount of patience in her dressmaking, eco-friendly lifestyle, and combines that with her love for fashion and vintage. She grew up in the city, with not much space to play as a child. She was raised looking at the Manhattan skyline in the hustle and bustle on the apron strings of her late grandmother, Frances, who she refers to as her mother as her primary caretaker.
As a child she was occupied most days with long walks, simple games, in the company of a creative woman who knew how to make something fun and interesting from something as simple as a fashion magazine to a needle and thread. Her grandmother a child of European Immigrants was pursuing an education in fashion and design when her mother (maggie's greatgrandmother) abruptly died of cancer, and she was forced into working and quitting her education to help her family at 18. However, it was those sketches, doodles, and thriftiness that surrounded Maggie during her childhood which inspired her to do what she does today after pursuing a career in business and graphics.
"I have met women like me, from all walks of life, lawyers, doctors, professionals, creating fashion from patterns of the past. Sewing is no longer for old women, it is back and really respected."
"what was once just necessity is now cool and trendy.. but I have been into the vintage looks for so long.. I remember being a child watching my Grandmother sew and really take to fashion, and then I related to the character Molly Ringwald played in "Pretty In Pink".."
You can take take pleasure and find satisfaction in creating one of a kind gown design. You can be certain that there will never be anybody else, or someone near you wearing an identical couture style, or a similar dress. Since Maggie has always been one to march to the beat of her own drum, this has always Maggie seeks out Vintage Patterns that carry on modern style – without looking like a costume. This is so you can look up to date, different, – without looking like a costume. This is so you can take a Vintagecore pattern and recreate stylish apparel that is hot and still your own.
It is no longer fashionable to wear a certain cut pant, or blouse, fashion and style is about wearing pieces that fit and make your body look good. That is why making your own clothing from vintage patterns is a unique way to create clothing that fits you as an individual and looks good. Trends are no longer trendy and looking good is the plus choice of women, stylists and designers.

She claims to find items that fit better than department store petite department.
Vintage Pattern inventions certainly 'turn heads' – for all of the right reasons. Handmade apparel is particularly noticed by the fashion aware and style enthusiasts - wondering if there is a way to attain similar couture appearances. Maggie admits she likes to sew but gets attached to the apparel she creates from vintage patterns, “I am somewhat selfish or too generous when it comes to my clothing creations. I will either keep everything, or give my creations to close friends and family. I am also not as proud as I should be! Since I have been purchasing other artisans clothing, I am more confident in my handmade garments, and I know my skills are up to par, and surpass my own expectations at times.."
