Welcome to the Vintage Fashion Library!

Whether you are new to sewing or are an advanced sewists, love vintage or prefer modern styles, Vintage Fashion Library offers something to fit your sewing needs. The shop offers patterns from the Civil War era up to the 2000s, and at every skill level. We also offer knitting and crochet patterns, as well as embroidery transfers, fashion and sewing books, trims, labels and much more. Check out the selection -- new patterns and references are listed daily!

Learning to Sew?

Our store features lots of easy to sew styles that are perfect for beginners.  Using our easy patterns will help you build your skillset quickly.  There are even some patterns from the 1960s and 1970s that build your skills one at a time, such as learning to do darts, or insert a zipper. Just search keyword EASY to find them!  Do keep in mind that what we consider easy today is not the same as in earlier years, so we suggest true beginners use the easy patterns from the 1970s for the best experience. Have fun!


Experienced Sewist?

We have sewing patterns for every skill set.  Keep in mind:

  • Vintage sewing patterns may use terms not seen today, or may have minimal instructions, as was the norm for some eras. 
  • Some patterns may be unprinted, meaning there are no markings on them.  These projects are completed by matching perforations on the tissue paper pieces.  If you've never used an unprinted pattern, no worries!  Just click here or here to find out how to use them. 
  • We have dozens (thousands) of patterns.  If you don't see what you are looking for, please contact us so we can find it for you.
