Hand crafted contemporary fashion jewellery, made with love.
Vintage News of the World Caftan Paper Sewing Pattern, 91. Three sizes from Small: 87 -92cms, Medium 97-102cms, Large 107-112cm bust.
Printed in the 1980's, this News of the World sewing pattern has two styles of caftan - the only garment the 'well dressed woman of the 80's' would wear at home. (I came back to England in 1983 after 3 years living in Greece - I LIVED in caftans!). This pattern is totally customisable to you - your style, your look, it can be very easily shortened to your requirement, if you prefer.
This pattern is still in the factory folded condition it was purchased in all those years ago. It's never been cut and, therefore, never been used. It's pure and pristine, just waiting for you!
My mother and I used to collect vintage sewing (and knitting) patterns. We'd scour old haberdashery shops, charity shops and boot sales for them. Mum's collection started before I was born (before the Cold War! that's all you're getting from me about my age!). All my clothes were made by her when I was young, including my underwear! She passed on her love of sewing, knitting and all kinds of crafting, to me in my genes, I suppose because, as soon as I was old enough, I started collecting my own 'treasures'.
