My local Seattle fabric store – Pacific Fabrics (the one that sells great garment fabric) recently sent out a notice about a Sew Chic trunk show. If you are interested it is at their Northgate location from 10 to noon on September 1.

I loved vintage clothes when I was younger and would find them at thrift stores and by raiding my mom’s closet. I found as I aged they didn’t look as fabulous and made me look vintage. As an experiment I browsed the collection to see what would work with my triangle body shape. The website sewchicpatterns.com is broken down into 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s style patterns along with several other categories.

Today let’s look at the 1930’s collection. The Myrtlewood dress is my favorite. That belt at the hip line would not work for me so alas I must move on to the other choices. The Fantasia dress moves the sash up above the waist and would be a perfect choice for a triangle. The Constance dress, Ehlen and Portrait blouses are three more fabulous choices because the details are above the hips. These beautiful styles would be perfect for a triangle.

Next week I will tackle the 1940’s collection  to see which of these great patterns I could use. Which of these 30’s patters do you like the best?
