The lingo of vintage clothing is often like learning a different language. What is a funnel neck? What is a gored skirt? It's handy to know when you are looking to buy that vintage dress.
My vintage library contains the 1970s Vogue Sewing Book. Although 39 years old, it is packed with valuable information. One section in particular is devoted to the different styles of sleeves, collars, skirts, jackets, pants and silhouettes.
To help with vintage clothing terms, there will be several postings over the next few days to help with learning the 'lingo of vintage'.
