Blog of the Week: The Vintage Fashion Librarian

If you’re curious about fashion history, is this ever the blog for you.

not from the blog, just an old ad I love 🙂

What: The Vintage Fashion Librarian, the blog for the online pattern retailer Vintage Fashion Library.

Who: Lisa, a vintage fashion expert and blogger.

Why: Covering vintage clothing from the Restoration to the 1980s, this site is a real crash course in fashion history that’s as much fun to read as it is informative. Taking vintage patterns as her starting point, she writes about the construction, cultural context, and history of different looks that were popular at various points in time. But that’s not all – Lisa also explains blogs about fabric and prints, accessories, ads, and important designers and style icons from eras past. If you’re into the history of fashion, are  a sucker for a certain era, or just want to know what a “walkaway dress” is, the Vintage Fashion Librarian is a resource you won’t want to miss.
