This is what I feel is an example of “new vintage”. It’s a modern pattern that has a retro feel to it. This might be an option for a sewer who isn’t comfortable with vintage patterns. The views with the scoop neck don’t really look vintage and the view with pockets doesn’t either, but the collar sure does. I’ve become a bit obsessed with this kind of collar lately. I love it, but I think it might be a bit over the top. This is just the muslin, as I just can’t wear that color red. I’m going to take a couple days to think about the collar before cutting into my fashion fabric. The pattern is New Look 6909.
I also want to show off this pattern. I have wanted to make some vintage styled jeans for quite a while but have been hesitant to grade up trouser patterns. I managed to find one in my size. I am concerned that they will look like “mom jeans” but I hope with the right top they will just look vintage,
