I hope to soon sew a swing coat that is a Vintage Vogue Retro pattern. Are these patterns just re issued, same as the originals or are they updated to today's pattern sizing? In other words, would I buy the size I always do and make my usual alterations?

These patterns are a new experience for me and I appreciate any imput you have. I plan to use Vogue 1083.Vogue 1083

They are updated to modern sizing as far as I can tell and just have less ease then modern ones. It might just be my body, too, but it seems I have a lot more fitting to do with them then the originals.

They use current sizing...

but as always, check your measurements against the sizing on the envelopes! :)

that's funny--i have the opposite experience and find they have extra ease to compensate for the fact that they were re-drawn for a modern audience! YMMV, of course, and definitely check your measurements against the bust and waist measurements printed on the pattern. i've had to do extensive alterations on all 3 reprint patterns i've used, but i've still enjoyed every one of them!
