Vintage Patterns

One of the joys of selling sewing patterns is getting to look at them, see the different styles, see how little some classic styles have changed and the different sewing techniques required. This Butterick Pattern 3326 is a good example of our older patterns. It is designed by Evan-Picone with many classic details. The jacket has a funnel neckline, two-piece long sleeves, welt pockets and is fully lined. The front wrap skirt is also fully lined and in two lengths so depending on the fashion fabric chosen can work for the office or a party. The blouse is a classic long sleeve back button blouse, with front pleats/tucks, and a stand up collar.

You may not want to use a pattern as is, especially as it may be hard to find it in your size, but taking some of the details from an older pattern can bring a special touch to your sewing. So many of our patterns today focus on how fast and easy it will be to make that those special details may be missing. Come visit our store today and see what you can find to give that couture touch to your garments!
