Best of 2009: Start-Up

December 22 Startup. What's a business that you found this year that you love? Who thought it up? What makes it special?

I love vintage patterns and some of the most inspiring start-ups for me has been reproduction vintage patterns.  I love browsing through the patterns at EvaDress, Vintage Pattern Lending Library, and the more recent find: Colette Patterns.  But the repro pattern start-up that most inspires me is Wearing History's reproduction patterns.  The patterns are mostly from the 1930's and 1940's and they are beautiful!

Wearing History's most recent patterns include the Romance in Paris blouse:
The Manhattan Melodrama (can't wait until this comes out in my size--I know, I could resize it but I would be afraid of messing up all the details!):

 And another one of my favorites, the Rise and Shine Hostess Pajamas (I have a thing for ruffled collars at the moment):
