Vintage Sewing Patterns & Related Accoutrements

Helena, Montana

Announcement    At Pattern & Stitch you will find Original Vintage Sewing Patterns organized by Eras & Occasions that are searchable by Bust Size. For Women's Garments, consider both A) your High Bust Measurement and B) that a pattern one bust size up or down is likely adjustable to your size without a complete re-sizing of the pattern.

<--- Patterns are organized by Fashion Eras & Occasions (see "Sections" to the left of the page):
✂ Early 1920s Flapper Era to early/mid 1930s Poirot Era
✂ Late 1930s to mid 1940s, Swing/WWII Era
✂ Late 1940s to early 1950s, New Look Era
✂ Late 1950s to early 1960s, Glamour/Jackie O/Mad Men Eras
✂ Late 1960s Mod Era through 1970s Hippie & Boho Eras
✂ 1980s to Present Day
✂ Wedding, Bridal & Formals
✂ Children from Babe through Teens
✂ Costumes, Crafts, Toys (& more)
✂ Knitting, Crochet & Books

To find that special Garment Pattern in a workable size, search for your pattern by 1) Garment, 2) Era, Decade, and/or Occasion, and 3) Size.

I carry Vintage Sewing Patterns, primarily, and hope to add Vintage Sewing Notions (buttons, tools, etc). In addition to Original Vintage Sewing Patterns hailing from the 20s & 30s through the 70s & 80s for Women, Misses, Men, Children, Toddlers, and Babies, I also stock select patterns for Maternity, Costumes, Home Decor, Stuffed Animals, Aprons, Hats, and whatever other Vintage Sewing Patterns of some uniqueness that I find of interest. I also carry some non-vintage patterns. Pattern Books and Magazines for Sewing, Knitting, Crochet, Crafts, and Toys, as well as Vintage Cookbooks and Vintage "How-To" Books, are also featured here, and most if not all are "Pattern" focused.

I have another shop on Etsy, akashaOnline at akashaOnline.etsy.com, where you will find my Handcrafted Earrings made with Vintage Glass and Crystal, Freshwater Pearls, Semi-Precious Stones, New Crystal and Glass, and solid 0.925 Sterling Silver Findings. All Earrings are packaged with Real Pressed Flowers, which I grow. Please take a peak over there, too; I've been in that business for 15+ years now.

Thank you for stopping in!

A Fancy for Sewing, Fabric, & Vintage

I've inherited a love of sewing, fabric, vintage, and gardening from my mom and both of my grandmothers, and these things bring me much happiness. Right now I'm wrapped up in preparing and making things for baby (my first on the way, in time for Christmas!). I also enjoy quilting and sewing for the wee-ones, and I always have a number of projects in the hopper for family and friends. Recent finished projects include a bias cut, A-line skirt made with batik fabric for my niece, which we worked on together, and my most ambitious project so far, a free-style, artistic, queen-sized quilt for my mom and dad's anniversary.

My mom taught me how to sew, and she continued to learn from her mom throughout my grandma's life (both seamstresses and tailors). I continue to learn from her, books and the internet, my local quilt shop, and...sewing! I really want to learn more about garment making from my mom--She has a real talent for it.

I started this vintage pattern shop on Etsy in 2012, and I'm learning more and more about fashions from the past as I go. I think my favorite era is the early to mid 1930s (Poirot Era), but I can't resist pouring over patterns through both the Swing and New Look Eras (late 30s to early 50s).

Thank you, pattern enthusiast reading this right now. My hope for you is that you find something that inspires you to sew!
