For a truly authentic 40s or 50s look, hotstep it over to My Vintage Wish, a treasure trove of fantastic retro crochet, knitting and sewing patterns. Curated by the lovely Julia from Brighton, they’re all digitally reproduced ready for you to download. “My grandmother started my journey into all things crafty when I used to sit, aged seven, and watch her create things for her church fetes. I just loved that she could take a ball of yarn and make something awesome from it with just her crochet hook,” says Julia. “Now many years later I want to share it and get another generation involved. I love vintage and each time I restore one of these gorgeous patterns, I feel like I’ve done my best to keep them alive!” We salute you, Julia! Some of our favourite patterns include a beautiful lacy collar, gorgeous wheel shrug, bold chevron blouse, plus a snood for that 40s rockabilly look. From £2.99, www.myvintagewish.etsy.com
