Are the measurements adjustable?

All our sewing patterns are multi-sized which helps the home sewer to achieve a perfect fit. We recommend checking actual body measurements before choosing your size and cutting out your garment.

Are the patterns customisable?

All patterns come with several design variations, so you can adapt, alter, or customise to suit your look.

Are vintage sewing patterns suitable for beginners?

All our patterns come with easy-to-follow instructions. Some vintage designs are more complex than others, so if you are a complete beginner, we recommend starting your sewing journey with an easy to sew pattern. Many patterns have a sewing skill rating, so choose a design that is ‘Easy’ or ‘Very Easy’.
