  • Style 4301A- Hi Tarna I'm new here and well lets just say I'm messing up all over the place. I just created a page and of course relized after I pulished it that there is one already for the same pattern. I tried to delete my page but I can't figure out how. I'm hoping you can help as I hate clogging things up with repeat pages. Sorry for making more work for you next time I will triple check before making a new page. Thank you so much for your time Deborah

    • Hi Deborah,

      No worries.  I will delete the page (only admins can delete pages).

      One thing to do to avoid duplicates is to make sure leave a space between the actual pattern number and the letter when you create the page title.  Of course, the best thing to do is to type the pattern name and number into the search box before adding.

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Butterick 6736 C - Tarna - I must have entered the pattern number incorrectly. It should have been 6737 C.  I just went in to delete my source since I sold the pattern and discovered I entered the wrong #.

  • 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.

    p.s. I know you already won Editor of the Month, but this is a separate program, and you deserve it!

    • Time certainly does fly, and things change! But I'm happy with where Fandom is going 🙂 and love that we are giving out swag to some of our best users.

  • Hi there!

    Congratulations! You are one of the inaugural Fandom Editors of the Month!

    While bragging rights are sweet, this also comes with a Fandom hoodie, should you choose to receive it. We'd need some shipping info from you so we can send it, but it's our gift to you, no charge.

    If you're interested, may I contact you via email to discuss further?

    • Hi,

      Oh wow.  Thanks for the honors!

      Who would turn down a hoodie, particularly now that fall has arrived?  

      Yes, please contact me via email (on file? -  I did visit the San Francisco offices once - if not let me know).

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Hi Tarna, 

    My name is Abby Glassenberg and I'm the co-founder of Craft Industry Alliance. We have a blog covering craft news and I'm working on a short article about the vintage sewing pattern wikia. I know that there has been confusion out there about what this site actually contains (misunderstanding that it's actually free patterns to download due to misleading clickbait headlines on other sites). The goal of my piece is to set the record straight. I wondered if you might be available for a quick phone chat this week? I'm in the Boston area. My email address is abby@craftindustryalliance.org Could you send me a message? Thank you! -Abby

  • Hi Tarna, I see you reverted my change to V7175A. The Magdorable link doesn't work for me (Safari, Firefox, mobile). The site bounces to a login page.

    If you know how to access it publicly, please let me know--

    Cheers,

    - Sarah

    • You need to log in to blogger to see most of those sites.  I just did not think we should remove the link, so people can decide for themselves.

  • Hello i was just wondering if you have the following patterns i have been looking for or maybe direct me where to try to get them? Simplicity 8729A - gunne sax dress Simplicity 8908 -gunne sax dress.

    Thank you for your time

    • With the current fashion, they are bound to be quite popular patterns.

      I would suggest checking regularly on popular selling sites, such as etsy and ebay, etc.

      Best regards,

  • Hi Tarna,

    Thought I'd let you know that Simplicity 9069 & Simplicity 9069 A are the same pattern.

    Regards,

    • Hi Dena,

      Thanks for the catch.   I deleted the duplicate.

  • Under the Browse selection, there are patterns listed in the Categories. For Example: Accessories > Collars Hats Butterick 3550 Vogue S-4816 ...etc. (This is actually in more sections than just that one, and the Men's section is completely pattern numbers.). Is this intentional? Also, can you add more clarifing categories? Accessories include many things; Hats, Gloves, Slippers, Bags/Purses etc. I think this would help streamline the Wikia if all the Browse sections were fixed. There are other suggestions I have. Please get back to me.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for your suggestions.

      The categories do have sub-categories.  Make sure you have the most conducive view enabled (at top of the category, there are icons that list 1) a question mark in a circle, 2) a list view, 3) a Gallery view, and 4) a combination Thumbnail/List View.

      The 2) option is the best to see the subcategories.  E.g. in Accessories, there are 97 subcategories to choose from, including the ones you listed.

      To clarifly - Browse lists everything on the wiki.  It has 109 subcategories.

      To see a list of all categories, see:

      https://vintagepatterns.fandom.com/wiki/Special:Categories

      True, the Men's category only has 3 subcategories....

      Best regards,

      tarna

    • I appreciate the feedback. However, I feel that you didn't address the question or request. I like the wikia and just felt there were things to improve on. For instance - like the example I gave; under Accessories > Collar, Hats, Butterick 3550 ,Vogue S-4816... this needs cleaning up since the patterns aren't a category). Dresses, Men's Patterns and Children's Patterns also have this problem. Another suggestion that I was making was adding the subcategories to the drop-down menu. For instance, in Dresses > Bridal , Evening , add Casual, Two Piece etc. It's more streamlined to do it that way. I hope you understand that it's not a criticism but a suggestion to make it more user friendly and quick access.

    • On the Accessories - are you talking about the pictures?  I still don't understand what you mean...

      Same for the other category pages.  The patterns are supposed to show on there.The way they show up is the way the wiki functions.

      If you have experience formatting the wiki differently, with CSS or JavaScript, please do let us know.

      As for adding sub-categories such as e.g. Casual, we are trying to avoid highly subjective categories such as that.  Two Piece is not a dress...

      There is nothing wrong with constructive criticism.  I am just trying to understand if you are making these suggestions based on experience with editing on wikis, or because you would simply like a different layout.

    • On second thought - maybe we are talking about completely different things...  

      I was talking about the category pages - what were you referring to?  The main page?  The header section?  Please specify.

  • I saw message where someone asked about free downloads of patterns and I am not seeing any way to down load anything, Free or not.  Is this just an info index about vintage patterns?

    I have a bunch of vintage patterns that I was going to donate to a theater group but maybe not, depending on availability of downlaoded patterns.

    • Sadly, there are some sites and articles publishing false information for clicks.  "Free" always draws a crowd...

      There are no downloads here.  It is a site to document the patterns.  We do allow links to sellers for the patterns, where available.

      Best regards,

      tarna (one of the admins)
