About TheGrannySquared

On Etsy since 2011

The Granny Squared is my passion for sewing, crochet, knitting and everything vintage

I started my Etsy store after stage 2 breast cancer taught me to chase my dreams. What started as a small shop with a few crocheted items, has transformed into a successful Etsy business that includes a large inventory of sewing patterns and other sewing related items. You can share the love of crafting with me on my Facebook Group, meet me on the square

I sew my own clothes--mostly. After my mastectomy, off the rack does not fit me correctly. Tailored clothes are very expensive, so I sew my own. It also gives me the ability to make a difference in the world with the fabrics I use. Sourcing sustainable and ethically produced fabrics is important to me. It is hard to find that in large dept. stores.

Currently, I am intrigued with mini-capsule and capsule wardrobe patterns. When you think about it, they really make a lot of sense. You can have a closet full of clothes from a single pattern envelope. Just change up the fabrics for different looks. Do you have a favorite capsule pattern?

Check out the newest addition to my Etsy shop's family. Sublime Grafx, on Etsy is a place to find vintage posters and reproductions, customizable items, gifts and promotional items. We look forward to seeing you there. You can also find us on the wen at

    I love sewing and vintage patterns. Older sewing patterns are a connection to our past. Some of the fashions never go out of style. My favorite eras are the 1920s flapper, and the fun lines of the 1960s and 70s.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Sewing patterns are not the same size as off the rack clothes. Vintage sewing pattern sizes are different from modern sewing patterns. To make sure you get the correct size pattern, take your bust, hip, and waist measurements with a tape measure. Use those measurements and the sizing information on the pattern envelope (always available in my photos) to choose the correct size.

What is a cut and punched or unprinted pattern?

Vintage sewing patterns, especially those prior to 1950 were not printed like modern patterns. They were pre-cut at the factory and have a series of perforations and punch marks that are used to construct the garment.

This type of pattern is called "cut and punched" by the industry because that is how it was manufactured. A basic knowledge of garment construction and sewing is required. Seam allowances may or may not be included.

There is no printing on the pattern pieces. Pattern pieces are identified with perforated numbers or letters.

Is this a reproduction or copy of a pattern?

All of my patterns are the original patterns from the manufacturer unless I have specified that it is a reproduction or copy.

What is a pattern rating?

Most patterns are rated from very easy to advanced. You should choose a pattern that fits your sewing skills.

The easiest and quickest patterns to sew. Great for beginner or the experienced sewer with limited time available.

Easy-to-sew patterns but with more details than the Very Easy category. Perfect for those with limited sewing knowledge or little time.

These patterns are perfect if you have more time to sew, and more experience sewing. Look for challenging designer techniques, tailoring, unique construction details.

Perfect for those who like the sewing challenge of professional tailoring and fine couture techniques.

Is this a digital pattern?

My only digital patterns are original crochet patterns that I created and designed. They are not reproductions of older patterns. All digital patterns are clearly marked.
