This McCall pattern was originally created by Dec. 30, 1919 and the copyright has expired. This pattern has been re-digitized into it's current format. All content falls under the copyright Vintage Pattern Lending Library 2005, and as such, no portion of this pattern may be photocopied or reproduced by any means without the written consent of Vintage Pattern Lending Library.


The source material from which these early patterns are replicated contain much less information than the more modern patterns from the 1920's and 1930's. Patterns and fashion journals published during these eras presumed that the home seamstress possessed sufficient skills to construct a garment without detailed directions. As a result, patterns for facings, linings and other details - such as instructions on how to create trims, are sketchy at best -- and usually non-existent. Most of the time sizes and yardage information is also unavailable.

Be aware that all of these patterns run small compared to our modern bodies, and were drafted with the understanding that "proper" undergarments and corsets would be worn underneath. Armholes especially tend to be much tighter and smaller than modern garments. It is very important when sewing these items to make a fitting mock-up of the pattern out of muslin or other waste fabric, and make all of the adjustments for your individual figure on the mock-up.

Our replicated historic patterns are the highest quality available. They are electronically digitized and printed on a high-quality graphics printer in two to three colors. Paper is a beautiful 18lb semi-transparent vellum for ease of pinning and cutting. They are NOT inferior hand drawn, photo-copied or blue-printed replications. Our reproduced patterns are printed on full size sheets - no need for taping multiple small pages, or re-sizing from a small diagram.

Our patterns include seam allowances, grain lines and updated text for ease of construction. Patterns are reproduced directly from the original source material, with no changes in order to retain the historical accuracy of the pattern. Prior sewing experience and knowledge of working with vintage patterns is recommended.

Please note: This is NOT a finished garment and the original documentation and pattern are NOT included.

Since 1998, VINTAGE PATTERN LENDING LIBRARY has been the 'go to' source for vintage sewing pattern reproductions. We accept 100% returns on any patterns you are not happy with. Please visit us at www.vpll.org to learn more about our preservation projects.
