This pattern came quickly. It was in perfect condition. God bless prompt and truthful sellers. Jn. 3:16, Rom. 8:28 We are happy to be able to buy these older, more modest patterns.

About

Turning clutter into a business!

I have been selling items online at various venues for many years but I decided to start selling sewing patterns exclusively because I had become an overly zealous collector of sorts. I have been collecting contemporary sewing patterns since the early 90's after moving to Atlanta and about two years ago I decided it was time I started selling most of them because I wasn't ever going to use the vast amount of patterns I had collected. So this business was born out of the necessity for me to thin out my stash.

I came to love vintage patterns for my own personal needs. The things I was seeing in the pattern books just looked a bit too trendy and young, lacking the style and sophistication of the clothes of decades past. So I began to pick up a few here and there until I had a hoard of those too!

I do love fashion, but a girl has to draw the line when she has no more room for her shoes and bags! So I decided to sell online at Etsy and I haven't looked back since.

I think every pattern has a person looking for it and I'm trying to bring you two together!

    Patterns is just a by-product of my love for sewing. After years of growing up and life getting in the way I gave in to buying my clothes. Now I've decided I want to start back making my clothes. Ladies, I think that is the first sign of aging!

Shop policies

Last updated on January 18, 2016
The Pattern Source want to be your first stop on the web for your sewing needs. We primarily sell OOP (out-of-production) and vintage patterns. Occasionally we have current issue patterns also. We carry all the major pattern companies: Simplicity, McCall's, Butterick and Vogue. Occasionally, we have New Look, Burda, Jalie, Green Pepper and others. At The Pattern Source all our patterns are inspected for completeness prior to listing so you will know just what you are buying! Most of all we provide tracking numbers and insurance at no charge on any of the pattern we sell.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment method: Etsy's Direct Checkout or PayPal
Buyer may exchange items only, no refunds.
Buyer has 7 day to notify me of exchange.
Return postage will only be provided if a mistake is made by me.
Return shipping charges will be paid by buyer on exchanges.
Shipping
When completing the checkout please provide a valid shipping address that matches your PayPal verified address or the address on your credit card statement. We will not pay for the 2nd shipment of a package due to insufficient or incorrect shipping addresses. If your package is returned to us you will need to pay additional postage costs to have it reshipped. If you want your package shipped to an alternate address send me a private message via Etsy's "Ask seller a Question" tab on in the checkout "notes to seller".

All patterns are shipped via one of the following shipping classes: (1) USPS 1st Class (2) USPS 1st Class International (3) USPS Priority Mail (4) USPS Priority Mail International. We reserve the right to choose the most economical shipping method depending on the weight and destination of the package.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: IF YOU ARE MAKING A PURCHASE OF MORE THAN 3 PATTERNS PLEASE EMAIL ME PRIOR TO PURCHASING SO I CAN SUBMIT TO YOU A SHIPPING QUOTE, ALL PACKAGES OVER 8 OZS ARE QUITE EXPENSIVE AND YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW PRIOR TO PURCHASING.

Beginning January 17, 2016 International shipping rates will increase to $9.50 for Canada and $13.25 to all other countries. I can ship up to 8 ozs in one package for that price. Most patterns weigh between 2 to 3 ozs so take advantage of shipping multiple patterns for that flat fee when you make your purchase. Patterns vary in weight and customers will be refunded any over-payments more than $1.00 when I combine multiple items for shipment.

We are not responsible for the rate increase and we are just as upset as you are that we have to raise prices but this is indeed "the cheapest option to ship overseas" at this time. All orders over $25.00 will include insurance at no extra cost to you! Tracking numbers will be provided on the day of shipping but please wait at least 24 hours for the US Postal Service to update the tracking information on their website. Once the package leaves the borders of the United States it is up to the post office of your country to provide up to date tracking information. In some countries this information will be delayed or not available.

All orders will be processed and shipped within 48 hours weekdays. No shipping on weekends or holidays, all weekend orders will ship on the following Monday (Tuesday on holidays).

Most patterns are shipped in a vinyl envelope for added protection and cost effectiveness. Very delicate vintage patterns may have to be shipped in a rigid mailer for maximum protection.
Refunds and Exchanges
Buyer may exchange items only, no refunds.
Buyer has 7 day to notify me of exchange.
Return postage will only be provided if a mistake is made by me.
Return shipping charges will be paid by buyer on exchanges.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will be adding new patterns every week. Please feel free to make a request. I will hold a pattern for you if you need time to buy it before it's sold to someone else. Email me any questions you may have, about anything...I'm easy to work with!
