Welcome to the Vintage Pattern Lending Library, your source for reproduction vintage patterns from the 1860s through the 1950s. Since 1998, VPLL has been THE place to go for reenactment and costuming needs.
Visit our shop and enjoy a modern twist on vintage. All patterns are duplicated exactly as originally produced using a specialized CAD program to ensure period correct design, but with modern features like seam allowances and construction markings dropped in. Gone are the photocopied originals that you may find elsewhere – each of our patterns is printed especially for you. Any instructions that were included with the originals have also been transcribed for your convenience.
Our mission has always been to provide access to these lovely patterns for the sewing community at large. So grab a cup of tea, peruse our blog, plan your next project… my name is Deirdre and I am the curator for the Vintage Pattern Lending Library. I would love to hear from you!
