Free Vintage Sewing Patterns

1950s McCalls pattern, designed by Givenchy.

This is a gold mine.

The Vintage Patterns Wikia has out-of print patterns from the 1900s-1970s available online.

1920s McCalls pattern

Let me repeat that. Sewing patterns from the 1900s-1970s. Out of print. Online. For sale from vendors.

1940s Wedding Gown pattern from ABC Schnitt

Here’s what the site says about what they’re doing:

We are working to create one location online where people can go to browse through vintage patterns starting from the year 1992 and older and share information about them.

Vintage Vogue pattern from the 1930s.

The vendors include names we know, including Butterick, McCalls, Vogue, and Simplicity. But it also includes vendors long out of print before I began sewing, like Advance, Hollywood, and DuBarry.

Simplicity 1950s evening gown.

This is an absolute treasure trove for anyone interested in making vintage wear. Not all of the patterns are available… but one can dream.
