Everything that is old is new again. This certainly seems to be the case with vintage patterns and design books. Our department has a wonderful collection of vintage garments, pattern images, design books, and patterns that we use both for inspiration and teaching.

Our Advanced Flat Pattern class creates patterns based on vintage line drawings.

Our Pattern Design for Historical Costume class looks at many vintage garments and many pattern books based on vintage designs.
