Vintage 1970's & 1980's Vogue Pattern Catalogs - Oh, the retro fashion goodness...

I was at a pretty picked over estate sale a couple of weeks ago - you know what I mean, lots of junk left but nothing to get excited over - and I was almost ready to leave. I popped into the garage, and there under a table were a few of those cardboard magazine holders - I thought now HERE is something that could be good - and oh was I right!

Over 40 vintage 70's and 80's Vogue pattern catalogs - more like fashion magazines than catalogs really. I've been working on getting them listed for about a week now, I have about a dozen left to do, hopefully tonight...

They are loaded with photo spreads and features by designers - one issue has Diane Von Furstenberg on the cover - and there a few models that I recognize, including of course everyone's favorite 70's fashion plate, Christie Brinkley!

I wish I had time to scan more of the pages - but if I scanned all the good pages I would never get them listed! So I have just scanned the covers and a couple pages on each. I'll post the pages here (click on the image to see it full size) - if you want to check out the listings, just click on over!

I'm not much of a fashionista, but even I know that these are a rare score, and a must have for any vintage clothing geek! I'll post the rest of the pages I scan in in the next day or two... stay tuned :)

I was hoping for the pattern catalogues but the mags are rad too! I wore some of those clothes back in the day. (Geez I feel old.)

Oh they are pattern catalogs - a lot of the fashions have a pattern number listed for them. Click the pages to zoom in, you will see that info...
