Announcement   Welcome to "She'll Make You Flip!", your source for out-of-print Vintage, Retro and Modern sewing patterns, ephemera and supplies. Our mission is to bring previously owned patterns back into the marketplace so that other sewists, artists and collectors can enjoy them.

Browse through our sections to find accurately dated patterns ranging from 1900 through today. We also offer sewing books, sewing ephemera, and back issues of sewing magazines as they become available, as well as embroidery and needlework transfers, fabrics, laces and trims.

Please note that sizing has changed quite a bit throughout the years, and differs greatly from today's ready-to-wear sizing. So, if you're ordering a pattern with the intent of creating a garment, order by your measurements and not by your ready-to-wear size.
We always provide a photo of the pattern back where the sizing and yardage information is printed, so please be sure to double-click on that photo and refer to that information.

If you find a pattern you love, but need a different size, instructions for grading a pattern up or down in size can be found here:
www.threadsmagazine.com/item/4424/quick-reference-for-cut-and-spread-pattern-grading

Most of the older patterns will show signs of age, especially the envelopes. In most cases the pattern pieces and instructions are still in very good condition. We check each pattern carefully and count the pattern pieces so that we can accurately describe the condition, and we provide photos that show any damage that may be present on the envelopes.

Thank you for visiting "She'll Make You Flip!".

About

She'll Make You Flip!

As a young girl growing up in the 60's, I spent a lot of time with my great-grandmother who exposed me to sewing, crochet and embroidery. I learned to sew on an old Singer treadle machine and eventually developed enough skill to make some of my own clothing.

After I graduated from college in the 70's I supplemented my work wardrobe by sewing. Later on as a young mother, I was torn between my career and staying at home with my three children. I decided to form a small mail order company, offering historically accurate sewing patterns and costuming supplies and books, which I ran from home so that I could be with my children while working.

Once my children were older, I had the opportunity to go back to my original career, at which time I sold the mail order company. Even though I became too busy to sew very much, I continued to purchase vintage patterns as I found them, resulting in a huge collection. Now, with Etsy's help, I can now bring many of these previously owned patterns back into the marketplace so that other sewists, artists and collectors can enjoy them.
