Seasonal

Spring is arriving soon – see our latest seasonal additions!

Sewing Pattern Heaven has customers all over the world and continually add new patterns that are great for your hemisphere and climate! Here in the US, our spring equinox is right around the corner and means that the cool days can continue into spring and then soon after, the warmer weather. For our customers in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, this means that you are going into your fall months. Our goal is always to provide the best in patterns and a wide selection to choose from.

One of the features of our pattern stock is that we have many vintage and modern patterns in uncut, like new condition. This assures you the buyer that you are purchasing a complete pattern in good condition, even if it is many years old. For most of these patterns, they are now out of print and not available in stores or through the pattern websites. Often we have just one pattern in stock but if that pattern is sold out, we will be happy to add you to the waiting list and should we obtain another pattern then we will notify you before it is advertised as being back in stock.

To ensure you are among the first to know about new additions, or featured patterns, books, kits and fabric, please “like” Sewing Pattern Heaven’s Facebook page. We post new arrivals each week and some of these can sell out fast.

As always, your comments, suggestions and requests are highly valued and help us select the items that you are need. Remember that we have added a fabric section and are adding new items to that shop section as well. If you quilt, then you know how quickly some fabric can be out of print so we are focusing on finding the best quality from well known manufacturers and many are also out of print so in short supply.

Thanks again and we look forward to serving you.

Halloween Sewing Season is here!

October is one of the busiest sewing seasons, and Halloween costume sewing is one big reason! If you love to sew your own costumes, then you will find a great selection of vintage and modern costume patterns at Sewing Pattern Heaven! We have sizes from babies to adults. In addition to Halloween theme costumes, we have costumes for historical re-enactments, plays, pagents and Christmas.

As you make your selection, be sure to read the pattern envelope information carefully. Most patterns are comfortable, loose fit but some patterns require special materials such as lycra or other specialty knits for the correct fit and appearance. If you love the classic look of a vintage costume, we have some great selections too. Remember that vintage patterns (those issued before about 1968) also have different sizing, so read the measurements and sizes carefully before you choose a vintage pattern.

In addition to costume patterns, we have seasonal clothing and home dec patterns as well. And if you like to sew for Christmas gifts and home decorations you will find a nice selection of patterns, kits and books too. I am always adding new patterns, so please bookmark this site and visit often and let me know if there are any patterns you are looking for. Thanks and Happy Halloween!

New Fall patterns have arrived!

Fall is now here, and a great time to start sewing your new seasonal wardrobe items. Many of the patterns listed on Sewing Pattern Heaven feature fast and easy details as well as great designer tips and shortcuts to give your garment a professional look. Sewing for kids is also a great way to save money and get a good fit as the child grows. Fabrics such as polar fleece are warm, easy care and easy to sew as well and come in a wide variety of colors, prints and thicknesses. Making zip up jackets from polar fleece for example is not only fashionable but polar fleece does not ravel so does not require special treatment of the cut edges.

We also carry popular vintage patterns, styles that are timeless, classic and always in style. Remember if you choose a vintage pattern, that those issued before 1968 had different sizing than the modern day patterns. You may have to choose a size other than the one you currently use in order to get the right bust, waist and hip sizes. Coming up soon is also Halloween, a big sewing time of year. If you enjoy sewing costumes, please visit our site for patterns for babies, children and adults, as well as for pets and dolls! I am always adding new stock, so please check back often and “like” us on our Sewing Pattern Heaven Facebook page so you will get notifications each time we feature a new pattern to our stock. Thanks!

Warm Weather Sewing fun-Vintage Patterns, Modern and more

For those of you enjoying warm weather now, or plan a trip to the warmer climates, we have some great patterns for everyone! The Vintage Butterick sundress featured in this article is a great example of how patterns from a few decades ago still have modern appeal. If you love to sew for kids, see our children’s pattern section, there are swimsuits for toddlers, baby clothes and so much more.

Remember if you buy vintage, which means patterns produced before about 1967 or 1968, the sizing is previous vintage sizing. Check the pattern envelope back to view the body measurements for each size which can vary from modern sizing.

All of the patterns on this site are originals, not downloaded or photocopied and all are checked for completeness. New invetory is added weekly, so please bookmark this site and visit often. Many of the patterns here are available in more than one size, so let me know if you need a pattern in another size. If it is in stock I will be happy to substitute that size for you.
Thanks!
