Catalog Thursday because I'm super late.

Ugh, Ive got so many plates in the air, but I really need to get back to keeping up my Catalog SUndays. SO here is a super late (or very early) Catalog Sunday!


Catalog Sunday

Oops, I'd been working on my patterns all day. Totally forgot about Catalog Sunday.
Also, son't forget about my new kickstarter campaign, a plus size illustrated pin up calendar! Could use the support!

This week is Spiegel 1945. These are some great summer and fall looks!


Working on my new repro, The Gibson

Hello lovely people.

the pattern making is mad crazy over here. Got The Deidra all ready and as soon as it comes back from the printer, the paper version will be in the hands of those that want it (hopefully everyone).

The next pattern in the line is a 1910 walking ensemble I've named The Gibson. It consists of a blouse and walking skirt that I modified to work with a larger body.


Take a look at one of the mock ups. Sausage, my 44 bust dress form is modeling.


Going back into the fray with this today. Wish me luck!
Yay Sewing!

Pre-Order the paper The Deidra sewing pattern now!

Hello!



The Deidra is available for Pre-Order in it's paper form now. If you want to be in the first batch of printing, go a head and make an order.

My Kickstarter backers can message me via the Kickstarter protal if you want this pattern and when it comes in, I'll ship it right to you.

Thanks, and yay sewing!




The Deidra is here!


The Deidra, the 1940s WWII work ware set is finally available! Its probably one of the most versatile patterns in the repro collection!

Wearing History blouse Pt 1

Hello lovely people.
I know it's been a bit of time since I've done any real quality blog posts other than the 
Catalog Sunday posts, but man, life can get so big sometimes.

2017 has been a whirlwind for me, some good, some bad. Well, mostly good, I guess. Then again...some bad, so I would boil it all down to a regular year? Would that work? Eh.

Compound that on the fact that it's hot as balls in the Los Angeles area, and you get a cocktail of lethargic days and unmotivated forevers. 

So I did what anyone else in my position would do:
I crock potted on the balcony.


1950s felt skit applique

Hello lovely people. I know it's been a while since I've done a regular post, but I have been busy.

The pattern line is going well as I start in on my second pattern, and in-between, I'm working on many, many small and fun projects.

I need 3 sewers.

Attention lovely people.
I need 3 experienced sewers to do testing for me on my pattern, The Shelley.
I'm working on the grading now, but I want to get some people to sew a bare bones version of it to see how my grading is. You know the drill. Looking for people as CLOSE to my sizing chart as possible.
Need a 40-42 bust, a 50 bust and a 58-60 bust. Ill mail you a rough pattern and email the instructions. Would appreciate a simple mock up of the pattern in a week from getting it. Ill have oodles of questions!
If interested, please email me at contact(at)newvintagelady(dot)com and tell me what size range you want to try. First come first served.

Id totally appreciate the help.

The NVL pin is here!

Hi all. For those following along on my kickstarter adventure, I'm well underway. I post at least an update a week there, so if you want to stay in the know, that's the place to check first.

I just got the NVL pins from the manufacturer and they look great!

Here was the proof they sent and here is the final!


I have listed some extras in my etsy store if you all would love a cool lapel pin to show your support.
Alright, back to work!
