    do you sell these patterns?

    • Jane Olive

      We are having an anniversary party for our women’s organization which was founded in 1917. We hope to have some Chautauquan performers in period costume. Do you sell the patterns or have recommendations for us? Thank you. Jane

      • I’m not sure what you are looking for, but the Past Patterns company
        makes patterns in modern sizes but based on real vintage garments. I
        have used them, but not for 1917 era. Here’s a link to their 1900 to
        1919 patterns:
        http://www.pastpatterns.com/1900.html
        The Folkwear pattern company is also very reliable. Their “Armistice
        Blouse” #210 dates to 1918. http://www.folkwear.com/210.html
        Check their site for other 1917 era patterns.
        Whether you are looking for historically accurate patterns or
        ready-made clothing, an invaluable resource is the website for The
        Costume Technicians Handbook, by Ingham and Covey. The authors update
        the Resources and Shopping Guide so that we can find hundreds of
        suppliers — always worth checking out and following its links. The
        home page is http://books.heinemann.com/ingham-covey/ and the
        Resources and Shopping Guide are on the menu bar.
        Another extraordinary site is The Great Pattern Review at the Bay Area
        Costumers Guild — people who love to dress in historical period
        costumes show pictures of clothing they have made from commercial
        patterns (much more informative than a drawing or pattern envelope,
        since they are real people, not models.) The people who used the
        pattern also rate its difficulty, and describe what they do and don’t
        like about it, or what they would do differently.

        Inspiring!
