Pattern Project

 

The PATTERN PROJECT of the MARC Fashion Committee is designed to encourage Model A Car enthusiasts to “dress the part” when driving their vintage cars!   The actual vintage clothes of the era are lovely to see on special occasions, but many are fragile and not wearable for a long period of time.  Making garments from era patterns gives the vintage look without the fragile feel.

These are actual copies of original patterns, printed on white durable paper ready to be cut out and used.  They are only available in the size printed on the pattern, but they are easily altered because of the style of the garments. Some dresses are designed to slip over your head and none of them require the installation of a zipper! Ladies’ sizes (36, 38, etc.) indicate the bust measurement, and Misses’ sizes (12, 14, etc) indicate the age.

The Simplicity patterns have minimal guidelines for construction, but they are very easy patterns. McCall patterns have instructions written on the printed pattern with guidelines for laying the pattern on the fabric.  The MARC Fashion Standards has an excellent section on reproduction sewing and fabrics with additional guides for such things as neck openings, plackets and sleeves.  There is also a section on how to make alterations to patterns.

Study the patterns on this page and then make your purchase on the Merchandise page.

Patterns for adults and teens are $30.00, and children’s patterns are $28.00. The pattern will be shipped right to your home!

Looking forward to seeing you dressed in Era Fashions!
