All manufacturer names and pattern envelope images are copyright that manufacturer.
Having accumulated a number of sewing patterns dated
from the 50's to the present, I decided a number of years ago to offer them for sale.
I've also acquired collections of patterns from
wonderful seamstresses around the country. I hope you find my site easy to navigate, and
the patterns at prices that can't be beat on the internet.
Key to Pattern Condition Listing
The condition of each pattern is listed in tables on the bottom of the same
page as the pattern picture. Click on the pattern image (all images are
copyright that manufacturer) to see more information about it, including
price, size, condition, etc. Here are my descriptions for the conditions
Mint - Pattern may have some superficial imperfections, but is
basically in the condition it was originally bought. However, older patterns
may also be yellowed. The pattern is unused.
Unused or uncut, some minor tears - Pattern has not been used, but
may have suffered some minor wear, mostly on the envelope. Possibly the
pattern pieces were not refolded exactly. But pattern is completely useable.
Unused, no envelope - Pattern has not been used, but the envelope
is not available. The directions are available, and may or may not have
yardage, notions, and fabric type indicated. All pieces are included, and
pattern is completely useable.
Used - Good - Some or all of pattern pieces have been used to
make the garment or item. However, all pieces are in tact and can be used
again. If pattern was cut to a particular size, I try very hard to note that
and indicate it to you.
Other Notes - Sometimes a pattern is missing directions. If it is a
very easy pattern, I still provide it, and note the missing directions to you.
However, if a pattern is not really useable, I do not put it online. I make
every effort to ensure that you have a pattern that is useful to you. If for
some reason, your order is not what you expected, please refer to my Refund Policy. Your satisfaction is
of prime concern to me!
All manufacturer's names and pattern images are copyrighted and registered
as trademarks by that manufacturer. Never ever would I copy the pattern pieces
for you. Sorry, that would be a direct infringement of the copyright laws. I
am simply reselling patterns as they were sold by the company, in new or used
Information Tables for Each Pattern
For each pattern, information, sizes available, and price are indicated in
tables on the bottom of the same page as the pattern picture. Click on the
pattern picture to get to that information.
Due to the number of inquiries I receive weekly, please allow a few days for my response.
Your Privacy Will Not Be Compromised!
I DO NOT sell or give away any private information you provide during your
ordering process. My
is secure from prying eyes on the Internet.
However, I sometimes get requests from folks desperate for a particular
pattern that I know I sold you.
If there is such a request, I send you email to ask you if I might send your
name along to the next person. And if you want to sell your pattern to them, I
do not get involved. But I never send your email address to anyone unless
I ask first. I also never give away your snail mail address to any other
If you want to sell patterns, I might be interested. I am specifically looking for patterns for:
costumes for adults, children and pets, pet clothing, capes, designer patterns, bridal, stuffed
animals, doll patterns, and hats. Please contact me with a brief
description of what you have available.
