About EvaDress

I offer reproductions of patterns dating from the 1860's through the 1950's that are in public domain.
The selection constantly grows as additional patterns are added to the collection throughout the year.
I also offer patterns of my own design inspired by fashions of days gone by.

~Pattern format: Each pattern is generated from a line-for-line draft of the original antique pattern pieces for the most accurate results in marking and size. The patterns are printed in black-line on lightweight translucent bond paper for durability and semi-transparent quality.
Translucency is critical when laying pattern pieces on fabric with prints or lines. All illustrated and printed material that accompanied the original vintage pattern is reproduced and included with the patterns unless otherwise noted.

~About the print catalogue: The pattern collection may also be viewed in the 29-page color print catalogue which may be ordered online or by mail for $10 in the U.S. or $17 overseas (shipping and handling is included in these prices).
I do not yet have an affordable way to include yardage information for each pattern in the print catalogue.  You are welcome to look it up online (via link to .pdf from each pattern's page), e-mail or call and ask for this information.

~Methods of Payment are: VISA, MasterCard and Discover, Checks and Money Orders issued in U.S. funds are accepted. You may place your credit card order securely on the web site, or via postal service from a downloadable form from the homepage. Mail payments to: EvaDress P.O. Box 3108 Prescott, AZ 86302-3108, U.S.A.

~Tips about using this site: On each pattern page, you will see an option to click text to download a .pdf containing a yardage chart and schematic of the pattern pieces
to help you when shopping for fabric or notions.
