Sewing Patterns

We are completely enamored with sewing patterns from small independent companies!

 

Decades of Style patterns are made in nearby Oakland, California. They provide vintage patterns reproductions from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s in the form of easy-to-use working patterns. They edit and add information and illustrations to clarify instructions for the specific pattern as needed. To further improve usability, where necessary, they explain vintage sewing terms and techniques used in the pattern construction. Patterns include sizes A/B/C.

 

Colette Patterns are made with love in Portland, Oregon. Each Colette pattern comes packaged with a beautifully printed booklet with fine linen-textured cover and a stitched binding. Instructions are clearly illustrated, and each booklet includes a glossary of sewing terms and a special area for the sewist’s own notes. Patterns include sizes 0-18.

  1. Laurel Dress or Blouse (Beginner) by Colette Quickview

    Laurel Dress or Blouse (Beginner) by Colette

    A classic shift dress or blouse pattern with bias tape edging. Includes sizes 0 - 18

    Looking for a stash-buster that will work with a wide range of fabrics and nearly any print? This chic and simple shift dress is easy to sew, astoundingly versatile, and comfortable to wear year-round. Edges are finished with bias tape, cutting down fabric requirements while letting you play with color and print combinations. Try a contrasting binding, or binding made from your self fabric. Bound edges also give a clean look for sheer fabrics.

    The fit is semi-loose with a fitted bust and back darts to keep the shape streamlined. The absence of front seams or waist darts makes Laurel an ideal choice for prints that normally may be difficult to work with, such as stripes, plaids, or large scale florals.

    Version 1 includes yardage and instructions for underlining, so you may use sheer or lace fabrics.

    Version 2 includes menswear-style patch pockets.

    Version 3 features classic 1960s style gathered cuffs.

    Version 4 is an easy pullover blouse with no closures.
