Original Vintage Patterns, Larger Sizes, Great Design
I learned to sew as a little girl, watching my mother carefully cut out patterns and fabric with her heavy pinking shears on our tiled kitchen counter. Somehow she was able to cut both the pattern and the fabric at the same time and not mess up. I'm not that brave. I lost my mom a long time ago, and sewing keeps me feeling connected to her.
All my patterns are original and complete. They have each been carefully counted and checked. Occasionally a pattern is so wonderful I will offer it despite a missing belt pattern or other small issue, but this is the exception and always clearly indicated. I focus on patterns that are at least a 34" bust, but if the design is awesome, I can't resist smaller sizes too. I price smaller sizes more affordably since they may require modification for many of us. If you are lucky enough to fit a vintage size 12, god bless you. May your closet overflow.
I'm a proud member of the Vintage Fashion Guild: www.vintagefashionguild.org
and the Vintage Fashion Guild Etsy Team
I find my patterns at estate sales and flea markets all across the U.S. It's not unusual for me to purchase an additional checked bag for a return flight because I meet someone who has a trove of patterns they no longer want and I can't resist rescuing them. I have been selling patterns, costumery, vintage fashion and textiles since college.
My mom taught me to sew, and I grew up with a love of making. This is my first Halloween costume, which my mom and I made. It's supposed to be Witchiepoo, from H.R. Pufnstuf.
