Hello…here’s my official “retro fashionista” freebie download. I had listed this as one of my favorite genre’s but had not gone around to creating an actual retro fashion freebie printable. Unfortunately, that’s because finding commercial use vintage/retro fashion images is typically a little tough.
I have been wanting to create some garment tags with a vintage ephemera look for either scrapbooking, journaling, smashbooks and other paper crafting uses. So, today’s freebie has a lot of vintage ephemera from vintage sewing patterns and bingo cards. The theme is mostly around 1940s fashion.
As for the details about the freebie, there are 15 elements varying from vintage Dennison- like labels, ephemera circles and vintage ephemera garment tags which measure approximately 2.5″ by 4″. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks or other types of memory keeping.
This free printable has 15 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file. Unfortunately, although I tried to keep the file size smaller, this freebie’s file size is fairly large at approximately 14.11 MB. These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp. The materials I used were all vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution, so I believe this contributed to the larger file size. Hopefully, you own a modern computer and internet connection that can make the download easier for you. Enjoy!
I’d like to say thanks to all those taking the time to comment, I sure appreciate the gracious “thank yous” and the legitimate “link love”.

As usual these freebies are free for personal use, (check my TOU if you haven’t previously.) If you have been here before, you know the drill. If not, you might want to read the quick TOU below before you access the printable.
Here’s a sample of the printout. I used standard, plain white cardstock; this one has an ivory cast to it. I printed the pdf on an Epson Artisan 810 printer.
