Glad to see some more vintage pattern sites. I have a few bookmarked myself. Now that I have a cool 1950s sewing machine I was planning on ordering some vintage dress and skirt patterns.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting all this! The patterns are especially helpful since my local fabric store doesn't have much to choose from. I've had an obsession with the 1950s since I watched Grease for the first time as a little girl (which, granted, was only about nine years ago since I'm only 16). Hope you have a wonderful day, darling. :)

Hey Lisa, I am a bridesmaid in a wedding in July and want a custom made Sage Green Retro inspired dress. Do you have any recommendations of such a person who does this?

Hi I work for a new vintage clothing outfit called Champion Jack's (http://www.championjacks.com). We're located in BC Canada and are looking to get our link added to your list.

This list is just what I have been looking for! Having a 1940s wedding next year and needed to find a bridesmaid dress - Australia just doesn't deliver the goods when it comes to retro. Thanks a bunch!
