Vintage influences in modern fashion

Of course we know that many of today's fashion fads are influenced by the past. But how many popular modern patterns have roots in the past is always interesting to find as I sort through my favorite vintage pattern sites.

The similarities to Simplicity 3835; a VERY popular Built by Wendy pattern, can be seen here in Butterick 2932, Simplicity 5578, and a little bit of Butterick 6124.

I borrowed from the library one of those books of line drawings on 1920's fashion design, and it really is amazing to see the themes that surface over and over again.

Everything old is new again, as the saying goes! I like those patterns.
