It may be over 60 years since WWII, but the spirit of 'Make Do & Mend' is very much alive and well. Colette Patterns have embraced the resurgence of crafting and created a range of sewing patterns for vintage-inspired clothing.
They have a range of pieces on offer, from a selection of summer frocks to menswear, suitable for any level of sewing expertise. Each is easily adapted in a range of versatile fabrics and are available in modern sizes 0 to 18. Their website is also a haven for crafting whizzes and have-a-go novices alike, featuring tutorials and tips for trickier stitches and fancy finishing touches.
Patterns start from $16 and are available from the Colette Patterns website.
