Sewing clothes can be so much fun if you’re sewing things you can’t get in the store. Vintage styles are always exciting to try. I’ve found a bunch of vintage sewing patterns you’ll want to check out. From dresses to skirts, tops or accessories.
Love vintage sewing? I’ve assembled a collection of over 45 free vintage sewing patterns, or I should say patterns that are vintage inspired. From vintage dresses to skirts, tops and swimwear, there’s something for everyone.
What is Vintage?
“Vintage” is a colloquialism commonly used to refer to all old styles of clothing. In its modern use, it often indicates that the item is at least 20 years old, while items a century old or more can be considered antique. – Wikipedia
WAIT! Does that mean something from 1999 can be considered vintage? I’m not sure I’m on board with that! That makes me feel way too old! For the sake of this post I considered vintage to be at least 30-40 years old or more. I don’t think a lot of people are ready to make vintage late 90’s things yet. Are you??

Everyone loves a good vintage dress! These dresses never seem to go out of style. I love a good 60’s style dress but these are all cute. How about that 50’s dress!

Pair these with a simple tee or make a vintage top to go with them. I love the adorable sailor shorts or the cute wool skirt with pockets.
