We provide the first step to looking and feeling terrific!

Sewing provides
* A community of the most talented and warmhearted people who encourage and nurture creativity in all of its forms.
* An opportunity to wear clothes that fit, are made exactly to your specifications, and that fits your style perfectly.
* A chance to wear styles that are difficult if not impossible to find in stores.

Northwoods Tahoe offers hard-to-find indie and vintage sewing patterns sent to you with the care that you enjoy.

I grew up wearing clothes my mom made, jumpers with appliques and patchwork dresses and overalls.
As a print model, I had the opportunity to wear for a moment or two clothes designed by masters in their field, and that thrilled me.
As a stay-at-home mom, I learned how to alter clothes to keep them fitting through lean years and growth spurts.
Now I enjoy designing clothes for myself using the patterns that Northwoods Tahoe offers; cool vintage and ultra-current styles of today.
The new generation of independent designers continues to amaze with their attention to detail, originality, and sewing tips.
The best part of all is the sewing community.
You are consistently the most sincere humble and generous people. Not to mention creative!!
It's my honor to serve you.
Happy Sewing Wonderful Friends!
Mary :)

    I grew up loving fashion and in my teens and early 20's modeled in SFO and briefly in NYC. While learning how to mom two spectacular sons, I also learned some domestic arts. :) Hope these patterns bring joy and fun to your life - sent with love!

Sizing details

retail ready-made clothing:
Measurements are listed in the description of each item and also can be found when perusing the photos.

Sewing Pattern Condition

Sewing patterns:
Always complete.

PATTERN ENVELOPES -
conditions vary greatly.
The patterns and directions will always be in new or like-new condition regardless of the envelope quality.


***Although we check all patterns multiple times before it gets offered to you, if you ever get a pattern that is not complete, you will receive a pattern sent to you with our compliments.***

BOOKS:
Always great condition.
If there is a slight imperfection, it will be noted in photos and the price will reflect it.

International Shipping

Even when I scoot your pattern out in one day of your order, First Class International shipping takes time and there seem to be a lot of variables like weather etc.

If you would like your pattern shipped in a more timely manner, please select one of these options:

Priority Mail Express International (3-6) days

Priority Mail International (6-10 days)

When your pattern ships, Etsy sends an email to you that includes a tracking number that will keep you abreast of everything.
