Vintage Patterns For Sale

vintage patterns

My collection of vintage patterns is large, very large. From the 1940’s onwards I have a fantastic array of patterns covering all the styles of the era’s.

But they make me a little sad as there is no way I can use them all and I feel like they should be getting used. So I’m offering them up for sale!

This way I know they will be going off to good sewing homes and lots of lovely dresses, coats, blouses and all kinds of outfits will be made from them. This makes me far happier as I know the joy they will give to all the other sewers out there.

Now all the patterns are vintage, so yes they have been used and while every care has been taken with them some of them have crinkles in the packaging or a bit of a rip and most of the patterns have been pre cut out (some are still pristine and never been cut at all). I’ve tried to put the details into the descriptions so check them out.

The first batch are available here in the store and for the next fortnight if you use the code HAPPYsewing you will get an extra 10% discount. Be sure to check back often as I will be adding more styles to the sale and please help spread the word so as many sewers as possible can take advantage of these lovely patterns and offer them good homes.
