Tailor's Guide


Tailor's Guide patterns are historically accurate.  They are designed by a trailor trained in period clothing and construction.  Pattern pieces are printed on stury paper destined to last through many applications.  Step-by-step instructions have diagrams and explanations of each detail.  They are tested for clarity and completeness by both novice sewers and seamstresses who make each garment.  Suggested fabrics, pattern layouts, and cut-out instructions are included as well as specific definitions and sewing tips.  Many designed include interesting historical notes.  All patterns are multi-sized.

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