Love Vintage by Nicole Jenkins
Love Vintage by Nicole Jenkins

I love vintage clothes. Well, all clothes really, but I particularly love the way clothes were put together decades ago. I sew a bit myself so I really appreciate the care and skill that goes into clothes from yesteryear. And I know I'm not alone in my hobby/passion, and as I work in a public library I thought I would put together a book list for you. All of these titles can be borrowed from your nearest, well-stocked library.

Style Me Vintage: Clothes: A Guide to Sourcing and Creating Retro Looks by Naomi Thompson.

The Fashion File: Advice, Tips, and Inspiration from the Costume Designer of Mad Men by Janie Bryant.

Vintage Fashion: Knitwear: Collecting and Wearing Designer Classics (Vintage Fashion Series) by Marnie Fogg

Minxy Vintage How to Customise and Wear Vintage Clothing by Kelly Doust.

Love Vintage: A Passion for Collecting Fashion by Nicole Jenkins.

Chic On A Shoestring: Simple to Sew Vintage-Style Accessories by Mary Jane Baxter.

Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions: An Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Cooking, Sewing, Fashion, and Fun by Amy Barickman.

Vintage Fashion Accessories by Stacy LoAlbo.

Knitting Vintage: 30 Knitting Projects Inspired by Period Fashions by Claire Montgomerie.

And lastly, some music to further inspire you.

So Frenchy So Chic 2012: The unofficial soundtrack to the 2012 Alliance Franšaise French Film Festival.

There are so many more books, the list just goes on and on and I want to own them all. But I can't, so I borrow them instead and do endless colour photocopies. Then I hope and dream that I walk into my local op shop and find one of these timeless pieces.

I hope you can get your hands on at least some of these titles.

Um...just a point. Legally you can only copy (or scan) 10% or a chapter of a book, otherwise you're breaking copyright and leave yourself open to huge fines - and yes it DOES happen.
