Hot! Larger Sized Patterns for Sale

Last week's post about finding larger-sized patterns made me more dilligent during this past Sunday's trip to the Alameda Antique Fair. I picked up a few to offer for sale at my Etsy shop. I tend not to sell pattern on Etsy since it's often more trouble than its worth (for me at least). I don't want to charge too much since I feel that patterns shouldn't cost an arm and a leg. But, at the same time, photographing, writing the listing and mailing them out is not a trivial task. I'm going to try to keep all the patterns I sell under $10 (including domestic shipping) since that seems like the right price and return for me. Plus, I just want folks of all sizes to have options. Here are the listings — message me in Etsy if you have any questions!

  1. Let me just say that I completely 100% agree with you! This nonsense of vintage patterns costing huge dollar amounts takes all the fun out of wanting to sew with them. I too understand the amount of work that goes into preparing to sell vintage patterns. A big thank you Mena! xoxo, Sunni

  2. I remember asking you about this very subject at the Mighty Summit. Thank you for keeping vigilant, and for making these affordable!

  3. Just went and had a look and they’ve been snapped up! Gotta be quick lol
