Look what I found thrifting today! They had this behind the counter because they were going to use it to wrap glass and china! A whole new meaning for "wrap dress," LOL! I managed to snag it and I'm happy to say it's cut and complete. Hooray!

About

Vintage and Out of Print Sewing Patterns by KARL 79

About ten years ago, I bought a collection of unused patterns from the ‘70s at a thrift shop. Inspired, I whipped up a few outfits (the Butterick 5498 “Wrap-and-Go” dress remains a favorite) and rediscovered my love of sewing.

I became obsessed, scouring thrift shops and estate sales for vintage sewing patterns. Soon, I had more patterns than I could ever possibly sew, and thus, KARL 79 was born.

    Owner, Curator

    I learned how to sew on my mom's Singer 201 when I was nine. I love vintage sewing patterns for many reasons: The literate, detailed instructions; the whimsical illustrations, and—of course—the fabulous vintage styles!

    Assistant

    My sweet Chihuahua, Frank, has been with me since 2010, when I rescued him from the South Los Angeles Animal Shelter. He's very good at supervising when I'm busy scanning patterns for my shop!
