Q. What kinds of patterns does Mrs. Depew Vintage sell?

For a detailed explanation of the types of pattern we sell, click here.

Both digital pattern formats on our website are PDF files (simply a file type). The Print-at-home patterns are printed on your home printer on normal paper and then taped together to form a full sized pattern.
(See an example here.)

The Draft-at-home patterns use a system of small patterns and rulers that scale the pattern up to your individual measurements. (See more here.)

In addition to many great vintage inspired and reproduction patterns, Mrs. Depew Vintage also has hundreds of original vintage sewing patterns for sale from all eras here.



Q. Do you have any photographs of your patterns sewn, rather than illustrated?

For sewn versions of our patterns, check out the Mrs. Depew Vintage Project Gallery on Pinterest.

Q. I don’t have a printer at home but I really want some of your patterns. Can you help?

 If we don’t have a pattern listed as available in print, we are happy to have your choice of pattern printed for you, just email us with your request and we’ll quote you a price.


Q. What should I do when I print my pattern?

All Mrs. Depew Vintage patterns are designed to print on both A4 and U.S. letter sized pages. To ensure accurate sizing, make sure that your printer settings are set to scale the pages to 100%.
