karl79's Shop Announcement

Carefully curated vintage sewing patterns by Vogue, Simplicity, McCall's and Butterick—featuring patterns from the 1930s through the turn of the 21st century.

Along with sewing patterns, Karl 79 also carries vintage sewing accoutrements—including notions, attachments and books.

With the exception of items in the "Cut & Complete Patterns" section, all vintage patterns sold at Karl 79 are unused, uncut, factory folded, and are complete with instructions.

All "Cut & Complete Patterns" have been thoroughly inspected for condition and completeness. After confirming that the pattern is in good condition and is complete—all pieces are ironed, neatly folded and gently placed back into its original envelope.

Get your items FAST! All orders are shipped within 24 hours of purchase. Items are shipped worldwide using Etsy's calculated shipping, which includes tracking.

Gift wrap—with or without a personalized card—is available for a nominal fee. For an example of Karl 79's signature gift wrap, please visit our "About" page:
