Ugly Vintage Patterns

Simple Simon and Company are doing a fun series called "You Can't Judge An Ugly Vintage Pattern By It's Cover".  So I went through all my vintage patterns and picked out my two must grimace causing patterns.

The illustrations on this vest pattern really scare me.  Just look at that smile in the top left. Yikes.

I don't even know what to think about this one.  The fabric, the cropped unisex pant outfits, the duffle bag.  It is all just too much for me to even look at.

I hope these don't give you too many nightmares.


  1. yes!! Definitely ugly!!! I think it would be fun to know what the redeeming qualities were that you found that made you want to buy the patterns.

    1. I didn't buy them. My sister gave me a ton to try to sell for her and these were in it.

  2. That second one cracks me up! Ooooohhh, is it ugly!! Hahahahaha!!

  3. Omg. Scary vest lady just killed someone. And she's about to eat them. I love these! Rofl!

  4. Look at the hairstyles on the first pattern! I don't know what is worse, the hair or the faces! I have to sheepishly admit that I have the second pattern, and have been holding on to it to make 'one day'.....


Thank you so much for commenting! I read every one (including those ridiculous spam ones) and love hearing what you think!
