Available from Mrs. Depew Vintage is a large collection of vintage sewing pattern advertisement flyers.
These pattern booklets are a great way to learn about fashion from a certain era, gain inspiration for your latest vintage style sewing project, research a particular pattern, or just enjoy the pages of artistic eye candy!
The images are also perfect for digital collage, art or scrap booking.
Sewing Pattern Research:
If you're trying to find the date of a particular sewing pattern in your collection, the 1920's and 1930's can be the most difficult to research.
Fashion Service Magazine published during these two decades used new pattern designs for the time in each issue and often had a handy index in the back with pattern names. With this in mind, I have created a page where you can find these indexes to see if your pattern is listed. The page will grow as I slowly digitize my vast collection of these hard to find magazines.
If you're interested in reading Fashion Service Magazine just for fun, I have several digital versions right here on Mrs. Depew Vintage. Just click here!
