Can't find the vintage clothes you want? Does the fit of most vintage clothing not work with your body type? Or are you just afraid to wear your great vintage clothing because you are afraid of ruining it? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, I may have the solution to your problem. A good solution might just be to make your own "vintage" clothing using vintage patterns. There are dozens of great vintage pattern sellers on the web, and etsy and ebay are also good sources of them. And to increase the fun, use vintage fabrics to get a very authentic look. You can start your search for the perfect vintage pattern at my webstore, Fuzzylizzie Vintage Patterns.
