The PatternVault blog turns six today. To celebrate, I’m doing something a little different—I’m hosting a giveaway linked to a poll:
To enter the giveaway: (1) Vote in the poll, and (2) Comment to let me know you voted. The winner, chosen at random, will win one $25 CAD gift certificate for the PatternVault Etsy shop.
Poll closes Monday, July 17th. Poll results and winner will be announced Tuesday, July 18th.
With thanks to Elizabeth C., who made sure the two 1980 retail catalogues pictured reached me all the way from Amherst, Massachusetts!

The designers behind the labels is what fascinates me. Thank you for your blog – I love your “recovering academic” approach to the subject.
Thanks for the shout-out about the catalogs, I am so glad they made it to you! I really love all of your posts, actually, and always learn something new.
Voted. For me it’s the style and techniques of decades past.
I like reading about the designers too.
Voted. Congrats on 6 years. Enjoy all the posts.
voted, I love reading about the designers; learn so much with each new post. And the images of models who are later household names is fascinating.
Voted! I love to know more about the designers but I’m interested in all the other things too so it was a tough choice 🙂
I agree with Bella: I voted for designers but I enjoy it all! Thank you so much for running this blog.
I wanted to vote for all of them. I do especially love the behind the scenes stories and photos.
I wanted to vote for more than one as I love the style from other decades but your photos and illustrations are beautiful too.
I voted. Will be fun to see the final results.
It seems like yesterday. Congrats Sarah.! I voted for: Industry secrets – models and photographers. A wide field of research.
I voted. Wanted to vote for more than one.
I love your histories but I also really enjoy seeing vintage couture designs (especially the tech drawings, which you don’t get for regular photoshoots)!
That was a difficult choice, but I’ve voted.
I voted! I enjoy the hidden history of the designers the most. Very interesting. Thanks.
I really all of the choices in the poll, and I miss those huge pattern books!!!!!
Love the designers behind the labels!
I voted for the designer history – been sewing a very long time and I remember so many of the patterns you showcase.
I voted – I really enjoy the designers behind the labels. Thanks!
I voted for knowing more about the designers, too!
Happy anniversary! I voted, but I like everything you do.
Thanks! I enjoy reading everything.
I voted, and very much enjoy your blog.
I voted. Happy Anniversary!
I completed the survey
I voted. It was hard to choose just one response. I chose vintage nostalgia because I enjoy seeing the images of fashion, particularly from the 60s through the 80s. I guess that’s nostalgia for some of us! Thanks!
I also like reading about the designers. But also love the pics and the general info too! So much fun to keep learning.
Love it all! I voted for couture vintage, which is my favorite
I voted! Thank you for 6 years of a wonderful blog! Congrats! Every blog post is always so enjoyable and keeps me learning.
Tough to choose; I love the images, but your in-depth knowledge and ability to identify the models and connect a series of patterns really engages me. Thanks for a great blog!
I’ve voted for designers but couture styles from past decades comes a close second. Or even better vintage couture designers 😍
The designers, but I honestly love all your posts. They are a highlight of the day, and I’ve tagged plenty I go back to over and over again. I got here courtesy of the Alexander McQueen pattern, but I’ve stayed for it all.
Voted! The designers and the couture techniques, in that order. But sometimes I also love the beautiful pictures. I got here searching free designer patterns and I was hooked!
Happy blogiversary! I voted.
I voted! Hard choices.
When voting I was torn between the “vintage nostalgia” and the “beautiful photography and illustrations”.
I voted for hidden history – the designers behind the labels
I love the histories, like which designers were the faces behind which labels? But I really appreciate that you find out and give the model’s names too. Why should they be forgotten? The images would not be as powerful without them.
I voted couture but really needed another vote (or more)!
I love the nostalgia I experience, the memories that I get from having lived through those wondrous days when we got dressed up. Miss them.
Here’s hoping you go for another 6 years! I find all your blog posts fascinating but in the end I voted for the histories behind the designers – that gives a valuable context to the designs
Hard to choose a single category – I always enjoy your posts! Just voted 🙂
I voted – I love seeing the couture patterns. They may be from the past but they look elegant and beautiful to me!
