Cool Vintage things on the Internet

Happy Thursday everyone!

So sorry about the lack of posts this week. I've been drawing and as soon as I get home from work, I'm all about that. I have been sewing, finishing up a dress, and this weekend I plan on starting some of the MnM projects I've been prepping. A hat from my new repro being one of them...hehehehe.

But this week I have an oldie but goodie. 
I mentioned this on a previous catalog Sunday but it's so cool, I think it deserves another shout out.

Andre Studios is this amazing online fashion catalog of sketches from the 30s and early 40s. Amazing fashion drawing all cataloged by type and style.

All the images are available in super high resolution images that you can easily download. 

This digitized collection of thousands of fashion drawings and sketches produced by André Fashion Studios between 1930 and 1941 is the result of a partnership between the Picture Collection of The New York Public Library and the Special Collections & FIT Archives of the Fashion Institute of Technology Library. The partners aimed to virtually unite a collection of spectacular quality and historical significance that is physically divided among the two institutions and, as an equally important goal, to leverage open-source technologies to create a prototype of a fashion information and image portal that would provide access to costume and fashion-related resources held by various New York City educational and cultural heritage institutions.

I warn you, it's easy to loose yourself for hours in this collection. It's just amazing and an invaluable resource for inspiration.

Remember, if you have a cool place on the internet you think I should mention, please feel free to send me and email and I'll say a big thank you for sharing it!

Have a great day and try not to spend too much time looking through this archive at work! ;)
