Prefer to shop offline? We still have a few hundred copies of the 2005 catalog in stock–good while supplies last!
My son has scanned a bunch of beautiful vintage magazines, pattern covers, and more. We’ll be putting one up this Friday for free before it turns into a Dollar Download. Leave a comment here and let us know what you’d like to see as this Friday’s freebie. Something late Victorian? Edwardian? 1940s? Thanks!
Dear Mrs. Chancey, Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns! I have been making Regency gowns from your pattern for some years now and I have so enjoyed them! I made this dress in January to wear to a wedding shower. It is now one of my favorite things to wear! Caroline F. Stunning […]
Hi Jennie! I’ve enjoyed your patterns for seven or eight years now, but I’ve never been able to get my show and tell submissions to work (I’m not at all techie). I love the new site, and how easy everything is! Here are some pictures of the romantic era outfit I made about five years […]

We have a lovely consignment shop in our small town in Alabama that often sells vintage clothing. The owner said I could feel free to share her images with a link back to her site, so I thought I’d show off this wonderful 1950s party dress she recently sold on eBay. I wish I’d had […]
Back when I used to sew professionally, I often received requests to reproduce gowns seen in portraits or fashion plates. This is a gown I made in 2001, savoring every moment of this delectable project! My customer asked me to copy the gown and the chemisette with standing “ruff” collar seen in the Regency portrait […]
