Finding and using vintage patterns

Excuse the lack of posts around here at the moment. School holidays are in full swing and time is being spent with my family away from the computer and the studio.

I wanted to talk about finding and using vintage patterns.

Last year Leisl composed a list of places to find vintage sewing patterns, many of these places are also great for finding vintage knitting patterns too. Ravelry is also a great place to look for vintage knitting patterns.

I also put together a list of tips and tricks for sewing with vintage patterns. If you've never sewn with a vintage pattern we recommend you read over this post before getting started as vintage patterns are quite different from modern patterns.
