Introducing the Vintage Sewing Pattern Company...

Hello! We are Gill & Dawn. We started our journey into this fascinating world of dressmaking many, many moons ago when we would watch our mothers and grandmothers sewing their hearts out for us. As business partners, having had a previous fashion design company and degree qualifications in fashion, we starting Vintage Sewing Pattern Company by sourcing rare sewing patterns, which led to the digital reproduction side of things. What spurs us on, even more, is remembering how my late father would get sooo excited for us when we made our first sales. He even helped count the pattern pieces for us, so this little story is kind of dedicated to him really.

Through a lot of sweat and toil, we eventually mastered the digital and grading side of things! We then added PDF downloads to help our customers get instant access to our patterns, which luckily has been a massive success.
We are currently in the process of re-grading our sewing patterns to fit modern day sizes, which are appearing gradually as you will notice if you keep looking.

We are both qualified teachers, may I add, so if you need any advise on material or anything at all, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
