FAQ & Site Info
Pattern Sizes are NOT the same as Retail Sizes. To figure out your pattern size, compare your body measurements with the pattern "Measurement Charts". Match as many measurements as possible to find your pattern size. Most patterns are multi sized to help you get a custom fit.
Please be aware that some of my items are previously owned, used and /or vintage items and therefore cannot be expected to be in the same condition as a brand new item. You should expect to see some age related signs to the envelope of the patterns. Most of my sewing patterns are from liquidations sales, they are new, uncut and the envelopes might show shelf wear or drawer damage. I purchased over 12,000 patterns from fabric stores going out of business. Check back often and be sure to add me to your favorites list.

I can ship to most countries around the World. Please contact me and I'll calculate shipping costs and email an invoice. IMPORT DUTIES and TAXES on International Shipments may apply and these charges are usually collected by the local postal service and are beyond my control. NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I have found lately, that it takes an unusually long time for my Priority International Mails packages to clear customs and in some cases 20 - 25 days.
