Love the fashions of the 1930's to 1940's? Sleek and bias cut styles from the depression and/or square shouldered suits and dresses worn during the time of World War II. There is so much style and history from these two decades!With these vintage sewing patterns from Simplicity, Hollywood, Vogue, McCalls, Butterick and more, you will be able to sew something nice. You will also find recent, modern reprints of some patterns which Butterick and Vogue have made. These will be clearly marked and easy to separate from the other patterns which are all original, vintage from the 1930's and 1940's.Occasionally, I find a pattern which is uncut and still in factory folds. All others are checked and counted. Usually, one of a kind with only the occasional duplicate in stock.I am always adding new stock, so check back often.
