What is Modern Vintage

Before I started collecting and selling vintage, I was always intrigued by any piece that resembled fashions from decades before. Whether it was  the style, shape or fabric,  I was always attracted to new clothing with a vintage twist.  Some of the most popular brands of today have very strong ties to vintage fashion and a strong majority of their vision is inspired by the culture and fashion from the 20th century. Let's look at a few designers/brands that get the definition of modern vintage just right.

Vintage patterns are a combination of vintage fashion as well as DIY at its finest. Although, I am not the best seamstress, I do enjoy collecting vintage patterns if not just for the inspiration you can find on the front. Whenever I spot one especially if it's from the 1920s-1950s, I get very excited. Whether they are from McCall, Butterick, Simplicity or Vogue, a vintage pattern can be just as fun as an actual vintage piece.  Your local thrifts stores usually have a great amount and if you are looking for something specific try eBay and get busy to get crafty.
