What's on your mind?
i need sewing instructions for simplicity 2228 for pillowcase dress firstname.lastname@example.org
My mom wore something that looked like a girdle but fit like a bathing suit with a snap closed crotch. it was a bra and girdle in one. Any idea of patterns for this - prefer not a long line leg.
I've bought a few patterns from links off this site, and others... but I'm not willing to use them until I have a digital copy of those patterns.
There's several digitizing services out there but a lot of them are for actual pattern designers. I'd like to hear if anyone here has works with a patterns service for my more limited purpose, though.
Without that information I could be here for the next 100 or more hours trying to find a particular pattern that my mom made for my daughter, and I would like to make in the future.
There are some great posts of the 1930s German patternbooks (eg. Deutsche Moden-Zeitung etc.) on the Wiki- and a huge thank you to those who have uploaded them. Unfortunately, the resolution of some uploads is too low for the text to be readable (even when it is enlarged on screen). So I simply wished to add a note to say that I hope future contributors will consider making their picture resolutions higher, thereby enabling viewers to read the small text, which has important information such as design numbers and descriptions etc..
Maybe there is a limit to the size of files that can be uploaded, which I don't know about- if so then disregard my little suggestion!
So far, I have found lots of pictures of the packages that held the patterns, but no actual pattern. Not even one. If any patterns exist, they are well hidden.
Does anyone have McCalls 2463? This is a 1960s Infant of Prague vestment pattern.
Why are there so few men's patterns - and no category for them?
Anyone interested in these? They are in fairly good condition considering their age, the color pages are still quite vivid, too. I also have a Butterick pattern from 1913 of a girls slip that is adorable and quite a few vintage patterns 1940's thru 1960's that I have to let go. My husband and I are downsizing and this collection is too special to let go in a yard sale. I know that anyone who reads this site will appreciate them!
Is anyone interested in purchasing a bunch of vintage patterns? Also some 1980's patterns.
Thank you, Kathleen
It seems as if you guys are not responding to people requests. I need to know about McCall pattern # 5026 a 1927 style dress. please respond.
Hi Vintage Patterns wiki contributors!
I am fairly new here and have noticed that when I add my shop as a vendor, sometimes I notice that the vendors listed above me (I always add my shop at the bottom of course) actually don't have the pattern for sale anymore, or the link is broken to their shop or item.
Please can you advise me what, if anything, can be done about this? I delete my own vendor links as and when my patterns sell, but we are all human and I am sure for sellers who have thousands of patterns for sale it is an unending task to remember to remove their vendor link from patterns as they sell. But if another vendor notices that the pattern is no longer for sale on someone else's shop, is it acceptable to remove that link? I am unsure of the ethics involved in that, which is why I am asking first.
Thank you! I love this site, and is a constant resource of information, and I love contributing patterns that haven't been listed here yet.

I'm looking for this pattern uncut with all the reading materials included.
Is there a way to find a member by their screen name? I posted a pattern (as a vendor) and I noticed someone had that pattern in that size in the wishlist area, with no link to how to find them.
I have 2 extra pieces to this pattern #1 & #2 skirt Front & Back they are cut. If you need them contact me at shop Jantiki on Etsy.
