The VSPC Galleria has decided to make it’s collection available for all the pattern purists out there. For the many reasons for wanting to sew with vintage sewing patterns we can try and help with what we have to make your garment beautiful and special. It’s a special feeling working with things from the past like a glimpse of what once was.
We also host “Patterns Helping Patterns” which gives incomplete patterns a home in hopes to complete another to preserve them for future use. If you have unprinted pattern pieces that look like blank pieces of paper to you we will take them along with all other orphaned pieces. They will be paired up with their matching patterns for safe keeping when duplicate patterns are donated to make a whole complete pattern. It happens more than you think.
What is featured in the VSPC Galleria:
- Envelope front and back.
- Dates of patterns if available here or verified by catalog reference or other publications.
- Pattern pieces image incase you want to see if your pieces match the actual pattern you have.
Note: While viewing the galleries of photos, to ZOOM IN click the “View full size” link at the bottom right under the photo. The image is very clear to view and read further.
We do offer digitized reproductions on priority schedule focusing on the more rare ones first, but we do filter on replacement pieces requests as they are requested. You are welcome to request a pattern to be reproduced and we can discuss it on an individual basis. Make your request through our contact page.
