The future is coming.

Some of you may know that I have wanted to start a pattern business for some years.
This is a preview of some of the patterns I HOPE to have in TESTING by the years end.

1870's Royal Worcester Skeleton Corset
(Multi-sized with instructions on making the unique busk and option booklet on the History!)
 Yup I have two, 2, TWO in my hot little hands!

1810 Corset en X (Multi-sized with a few style variations)

Girls Regency dress (sizes 2-6?)

Currently it looks like the Corset en X will be in testing FIRST. But before I can get that far, I need your help!
Starting up a business has a lot of costs, there are registration fees and then buying inventory and supplies. Luckily for me, I have most of what I need to start.
This is a list of expenses I know I will have Very Soon:
Filing fees
Paper and Ink
Shipping supplies
Mailing costs
Software costs

Eventually I will have to add to this list:
New printer
Storage supplies for Original Antique item, Reproductions, and Patterns
Antique items to Study
As well as the continued cost of Supplies.

How can YOU help?
Take a look at my Etsy Store. I have over 20 Vintage patterns, many in PLUS SIZES (which I am not) along with a few pieces of Vintage Clothing, fabric, modern patterns and other items. Yes I have more to list too, so keep an eye out for another post about that.

The more Vintage patterns I sell, the more space I have to store MY own patterns before shipping them out.

Don't see anything you like, but want to help, share this post.

Also keep an eye out for a post coming in the future about how YOU can test an upcoming pattern.

Thanks for Reading, I hope to have more news to share with you soon.


  1. The very best of luck with it! This is an exciting time :D

  2. I would love to try the 1810s pattern, but i highly doubt i would be a qualified tester! I will keep an eye on your blog :)
