Vintage Sewing Patterns 1940's 40's

Welcome to our Vintage Pattern Shop. On this page you will find vintage sewing patterns from the 1940's. World War II had a huge impact on everything during the forties and fashion was no exception. Once Paris fell to the Germans, American designers no longer had access to the haute couture designs. Natural fabrics were being rationed for the war and synthetic fabrics like rayon began to be used more often. People dress more casually in sportswear and separates. The silhouette of the forties was wide shoulders, narrow hips, bias cut skirts and peplums were popular.

We have a large selection of vintage patterns and fabrics to help you design your own one of a kind vintage 40's look.

Check back often as we are always adding new items.  If you are looking for something and don't find it here just drop us a line as we may have it in stock.
