Old World


Old World Enterprises continues to close down their business and we are unable to order additional patterns. We have most ladies items still in stock, but the men's patterns are getting spotty. We will fill any order we can, but we may not be able to fill all orders from this point forward; some patterns may no longer be available.

Years of research and experience with authentic period garments have led to these pattern creations.  Old World patterns are not simply copies of existing garments - they are original creations that faithfully represent the prevalent fashion trends of each period, from the basic silhouette to the most meticulous details and construction techniques.  Since body shape has drastically changed since the 19th century,a necessary departure from from historically accuracy has been made in that regard. Our patterns have been drafted to fit the contemporary male or female figure.

Men's suit and shirt patterns are multiple-graded in sizes 38-40-42.Women's patterns are multiple-graded to sizes 8-10-12-14. Outerwrap and accessory patterns are offered in one-size fits all.

Please note: All prices are subject to change. Please read our Terms and Conditions before ordering.
