Discerning, urbane, refined are words that seem more related to our contemporary understanding of what vintage encompasses rather than labeling an item as old or outdated. Our subjective judgement of what appeals at the moment to our sense of beauty and desire is surely a function of many elements.

I threw out all my old patterns - some were 40 years old. I still have some of my mother's pattern books from the late 1940s.

Oh my. Old patterns are in demand once again. I too threw out (gave to Goodwill) a lawn and leaf size bag full of patterns, some old, some that just grew out of favor with me. I wish I still had them. Sigh. I have restocked my pattern collection mostly from thrift stores still I wish I had kept the old ones.

Mine included the old simplicity style but I had a lot of stretch and sew patterns. I didn't (and my daughter in law didn't) think they were savable. I have old knitting books from the 1940 which were my mothers.

Just sharing this link https://flip-pal.com/sewing-projects

It really is an ad for a scanner but the sewing ideas were cute.
