For a plus-sized gal who is into vintage, it can get disheartening to see all the lovely smaller patterns and actual vintage garments. The commonly held belief that everyone was thin “back then” is a myth. Today’s leader in plus-sized fashion, Lane Bryant, has been around for a long time. I love looking at old Lane Bryant catalogs because them give me inspiration for sewing, as well as an idea of which patterns might work for my figure. My latest Lane Bryant catalog is the Spring/Summer 1935 Stylebook.
I have a ton of lovely pictures from this catalog in my flickr stream! http://www.flickr.com/photos/12275674@N08/sets/72157623467391873/
