Any parents out there packing a daughter off to college or university for the first time? I came across an article in a 1950 issue of Vogue Patterns Magazine called “7-Part Plan for a College Wardrobe.” Let’s compare those pieces the “college girl, young woman newly graduated into business, and the newly married” needed in her wardrobe then with their 2014 wardrobe counterparts today:
What was your college uniform like? Did it include any of these pieces? Tell us here! And for more patterns that work for today’s college students, check out our #NowTrending Pinterest board.
We made a video and we’re so excited to share it with you! It features two members of our team—Carlos Correa, Vogue Patterns designer, and Rachel Banbury, marketing associate—talking about and showing what we consider some of the key patterns from our fall 2014 collections. You’ll see sample garments from Butterick, McCall’s and Vogue Patterns. These are the same pieces the models wear on the pattern envelopes.
Our goal with this video was to help inspire you as you plan your fall/winter sewing. Leave a comment and let us know what you think. And tell us what other types of videos you’d like to see us to create. Thanks!
Now that we’ve got this blog up and running, it’s time for us to get serious about hosting a sewalong. Help us get an idea of what kind of sewalong you want (or don’t want) by taking this brief survey below. You can also leave a comment here with any additional thoughts about sewalongs, or, suggest a pattern you think would work well for a sewalong. Thanks!
