So Vogue, dah-ling!

One of my favorite websites to browse (and shop!) is MOMSPatterns.  I have bought a couple vintage patterns from her that are in my collection and was very satisfied with the prices and the fast shipping. She’s daily adding vintage patterns to the site and is currently having a $1.50 clearance sale through Saturday.  I also signed up for her newsletters and I just got the latest news this morning that she’s having a month-end sale on all the rest of her patterns!  At checkout use the coupon code ‘febsale‘ and receive 20% off your entire order, no matter how many patterns you buy, and if I remember correctly she also combines shipping if you order more than one item.  Sale ends midnight Saturday the 28th, EST.

Even more fun news about this site is she has been adding a huge collection of vintage Designer Vogue!  Most are from the 60’s and 70’s and while some of those are pretty cool, I love the REAL vintage stuff.  See the pattern above?  Love it.  And you could make it perfect for work or a fancy event just depending on the fabric!  The shirred neckline detail is so unique and that coat just MAKES it.  And see this pattern below?  Hubba hubba!  Dare I say red carpet worthy?  And it’s in my size!  I would totally make View A out of a beautiful green satin bedsheet I have (thank you VV), shorten the hem to about calf length, add a big rhinestone brooch right at the waistline where it gathers, and wear it to a summer wedding.  Or would that be too fancy?  Ohh the things I’d love to make if only I had appropriate places to wear them…

BTW, if you’d like to sign up to receive Jen’s newsletters with sale alerts and info about her site, you can do it here.  She’s not spammy at all and usually sends just a couple emails a month.  Even if you don’t intend to buy anything, it’s fun to windowshop! :)  And you just might find something you can’t resist…
