Vintage Inspired Sewing Patterns
Charlie’s Aunt designs and publishes sewing patterns for vintage inspired bags, hats and stitched accessories.
The collection comprises nostalgic designs for bags, hats and other stitched accessories. The “make-do-and-mend” style patterns have all been hand-drawn, illustrated and scanned in keeping with the personal and homemade ethos of the patterns of the 1930s, 40s and 50s, which form the basis for the inspiration behind the collection. They offer easily constructed simple designs with a retro feel.
PDF sewing patterns
The PDF patterns usually contain one style of bag or hat, but many also have instructions for trims, such as rose corsages or bows, that can be used in other fashion accessory projects.
Each downloadable pattern contains:
- Full-sized pattern templates with seam allowances already added, ready to cut out and use (some of the bigger templates need to be taped together)
- Well illustrated, detailed and easy to follow instruction sheets
- A colour cover sheet with photographs of the finished piece and extra pictures within of the style made up in different fabrics
