  • Hello there! I'm a member of the Fandom Editor Experience team and we've selected you to receive some Fandom swag as part of our first Editor Rewards program initiative with Emerging Interests wikis. This is free of charge, with a potential caveat I'll get to shortly.

    To claim your swag, you need to visit our Design By Humans storefront, figure out which thing you want, and then fill out this form accordingly.

    If you're in the US or Canada, that's all you have to do. If you're not, there may be a customs charge after the item arrives in your country that we cannot pay for you, due to vendor limitations. If you don't want to pay it, feel free to refuse the gift. We won't take it personally at all. If you are not the directed user of this message, please note that we will ignore your form request.

    • Thank you but I prefer to refuse the gift as I live outside US and Canada.

      Best regards,

    • I'm sorry we don't have a better solution for our international users! Maybe another time we will.  

      Thanks for letting me know.

  • My sister just recently passed away and she collected all types of patterns. Many of them are 25 years older and more. She has Crafts, dresses, kids, costums and more. I'd say she has about 1,000 or more in plastic containers all seperated. I would like to sell these in one lump sum. If anyone is intersted please contact me. 

    Thank You

  • Hi! I like to sew. I hand sew, but I'm kind of a noobie/beginner at sewing. I'm not good at sewing. I've never used a sewing machine before. I've only hand sew things. I fixed clothing, a water toy (It was a ball), my backpack (which I need to fix again). I'm actually trying to make my very own costume. It's a VOCALOID costume. I suck at it. :P

  • Hi,

    This new pattern you entered seems to have the wrong number.  There is already a 1940s pattern with that number, and the number does not repeat in that decade.

    Is it possible the wrong number was listed by the seller?  The picture does not show enough of the envelope to correct it here.

    Best regards,

    tarna

    • I Tarna, nice to hear from you. There's no way to find out if the seller got the number wrong because as I usually do, I checked on the Internet for copies of this pattern and didn't find any. It seems quite rare and is really beautiful. You're right, there's already a Simplicity 1954 from the 1940s, but it's a reissue of Simplicity 4365. Otherwise, looking at a Simplicity catalog http://what-i-found.blogspot.com/2009/04/simplicity-fashion-preview-1947.html the style and numbers seem to match the style and number of this one.

    • I agree, it is definitely from the late 1940s.  Hopefully, we will find the correct number for it some day (I think something may have been transposed).

      Best wishes,

      tarna

  • Hi, thought you should know there is a blog linking to this site which misleadingly claims you've "released more than 83,500 patterns of pre 1992, out of print patterns for all to use." SO you'll probably have a lot of confused visitors around.

    https://blog.artfido.com/wiki-has-released-over-83500-vintage-sewing-patterns-online-for-free/

    • Hi, thank you very much for the information. I don't think we can do much to prevent or block false articles from other websites. The positive point is that I read in most comments to the blog article that people were aware Vintage Patterns Wikia is only a database and doesn't offer free patterns. 

      Best regards,

  • Hi Petite Main! I tried a few weeks ago to add the name of my Etsy shop to the Vendor list so that I could put my link on one of the patterns that no one else seems to have. Somehow, I did something wrong as I apparently got banned for life for spam and vadalism!!!! I was told that the reason is that one can't advertise a business on Fandom. So, now I'm really confused as there appear to be lots of vendors with Etsy shops. Can you help?  My shop link is www.Etsy.com/shop/22Curtis   Thanks so much!

    • Hi Dawn, I don't know what happened before but I added just now your etsy shop to the list of vendors. All the best,

        Loading editor
    • Thank you very much. I have no idea what I did wrong! Yikes!

    • Hello Dawn,

      None of the admins from this wiki blocked you (and you are not blocked now), so I suspect you edited while not logged in, and the block came from Fandom staff.  

      Also, there are no reverted edits this year in the history of the vendor list.  Maybe you tried to edit a different page, and triggered Fandom's vandalism defenses by accident.

      There is no way of knowing without seeing the original notification of the block.

      Best regards,

      tarna (one of the admins)

    • Who knows? I'm glad it's all straightened out though. Thanks so much for your help Tarna and Petite Main!

  • Hey Petite Main! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Not sure if we never asked you if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for this community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well.

    In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.

    For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.

    If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.

    Feel free to have an open discussion with your community about this, and I'm available for any questions you might have. Have a good one!
