SewingPatternShop.com is not just about collectible vintage sewing patterns that give you an authentic retro look, though you will certainly find them here. I like to focus on timeless patterns. My goal is to be your favorite shop for simple, utilitarian sewing patterns to help you build your everyday wardrobe. Warm welcome to sewists of all levels!
All of my inventory meets the following three standards:
(1) The pattern is uncut.
(2) The instructions are intact.
(3) All of the necessary information provided on the envelope is readable.
Envelopes may have stickers, handwriting, discoloration, tears, and/or show aging with normal wear and tear. Envelopes protect the patterns and this often results in battle scars. To me, these markings, tears, and creases are part of the pattern's history and they add vintage character, just like my own battle scars. In sum, I select my inventory based on pattern condition (uncut), not envelope condition. The main purpose of this shop is to prevent the waste of useful patterns. Therefore, my simple requirement for envelope condition is that all of the necessary information is readable.
