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.
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.
Pulled this pattern out of my drawer, and on impluse tried to look it up, the photo here you contributed to was one of the 2 I found! Is this pattern really that rate!? I'd love to know more info if you have any!
Hi - I have an Etsy store and would like to be added as a vendor. My store is CrumpetsandJam. I believe you need to create the link so that I can add myself as a source to the listings. If I am mistaken please let me know how I need to proceed.
Is this about merging your new entries with existing ones? Mail order patterns were often distributed by several companies, so you may find a pattern you received in an Anne Adams envelope was also sold by The Workbasket, etc.
You will find "Anne Adams 4634" and your vendor link here:
OK, I see them now. Those are going to be hard to find with all the names that they might have. I tried checking on the Mail Order lists. Didn't see The Workbasket patterns. How did you know where to find them? How did you know that Anne Adams 4634 was the Workbasket and under Mail Order? I know I have more of these Mail Order patterns under various names.
I hope it was okay, and that I did this correctly.
Category "Sylvia Sidney" (a Hollywood pattern's featured actress) was misspelled in the categories as Sylvia Sydney. I see from the Wiki links, it appears incorrectly also on a pattern envelope. It's definitely Sidney, but since the pattern envelope has it incorrect, I changed the category to Sylvia Sidney or Sydney. I've never edited a category name before; I hope this was a correct solution.
Also: thanks also for editing my senior moment of the day. I added a new one as a B when it should have be A and you got it promptly repaired for me. Many, Many Thanks.
It turns out the actress (real name Sophia Kosow), appeared in some movies as Sylvia Sydney (e.g. one in 1936, another in 1939), and in most as Sylvia Sidney. So, the spellings are not necessarily incorrect, they may just reflect the billing on the movie.
We should keep both and link them, rather than create a category with "or". BTW - you did not actually rename anything, or even create a category. You simply entered a non-existent category name on the pattern page.
I'll create the second category and link the two a little later.
>> You simply entered a non-existent category name on the pattern page.
Whew! I'm glad that's all I did - I really (REALLY) hate making extra work for you, even with answering my questions.
Thanks for always taking the time to explain things, like you did here. It helps me understand the fine details of the way things work on the wiki so I hopefully won't have the same question again in the future. You're a great teacher.
Thank you for editing my post on Spadea 72905. I find this Fandom site very difficult to understand and navigate. I wish it could be made easier, or write some very specific directions on how to add to the site.
