  • These vintage patterns are fitted by a full bust or high bust measurement. Get the bust correct and the waist and hips are easily adjusted if needed.
  • If your full bust measurement is proportionally larger than your other body measurements you may be better choosing the pattern size by your high bust measurement and then doing a full bust adjustment. For more help on fitting and measurements click here

Vintage Patterns

It is noticeable, when using vintage resources, the older the patterns the fewer instructions and pattern markings were provided.

Many older paper patterns came with no markings or limited perforated markings. We have modernized these with some symbols added to the actual pattern pieces.

Some novice and younger dressmakers are not used to reading traditional sewing pattern symbols and indicators so the decision was made to write labels in English /French where possible. I hope it helps more people to read the patterns easily.

Typical markings added:

  • Pattern part (skirt front, back, side, etc.)
  • Centre front, side, and back seams
  • Zip placements
  • Button placements
  • Pleated areas
  • Seam allowances

The more experienced dressmakers, hopefully, will not be put off by all the extra information and labels

rare vintage patterns

We have professionally graded the patterns using a combination of traditional grading tables and modern 3d scanning and modelling for the larger sizes.

Too often larger sizes are simply graded up from a standard 36-inch bust model. Curves do not grade up equally in all places as we larger ladies know. Bums, boobs, and bellies have minds of their own.

I still strongly suggest you take the time to make a muslin (mock-up) to adjust fittings for your personal body shape. I have a full range of body sloper patterns in my shop to download to help you to know your curves.

These original vintage patterns are suitable for intermediate and advanced sewers.  You need to know how to sew zips, join seams, add facings, hem, gather, and pleat.
