Out of print sewing patterns
If you are searching for a sewing pattern and have arrived at this page on The Fold Line, it is likely the sewing pattern you are looking for is no longer in print. Dressmaking patterns go out of print for lots of reasons. This includes the pattern not being printed for a new season, the pattern wasn’t as popular as others in the range or the company printing it is no longer designing. This can be frustrating if you’ve spent time searching for that perfect make to discover that the pattern you love is no longer available. Here we have a few ideas of how you can plan a new project or search out that allusive sewing pattern.
