But American tailor Ebenezer Butterick was the first to produce sewing patterns—which were pre-cut and marked with notches and perforations—out of tissue paper. In 1866, Butterick finally produced its first dress pattern for women.

His first patterns for men’s and boys’ clothing came out in 1863, and they were the first patterns to be offered in various sizes, what are known as “graded patterns.” An early hit for E. Before the invention of patterns, most women could only afford to take apart old, worn-out garments and reconstruct them out of newer fabric.

The first commercially produced sewing patterns were designed in the mid-1800s by an American milliner named Ellen Curtis Demorest.The best advise I can give you is to ASK QUESTIONS and buy from a seller who has been doing this for a long time and preferably one who has many patterns to choose from!Don't waist your time and money on someone who decided to "jump on the bandwagon" in hopes of making a quick profit..very rarely care for or check the patterns they offer (though I have found many 'claim' to).I have links to a couple of websites I found that covers this topic in my 'me' page, but you can also do a search on the internet and find many experts who give directions and advice on this subject.

Otherwise, just keep in mind that you want to go by your own measurements and not the size number listed on the pattern envelope..measurements have "grown" a bit over the years.

Collecting these beautiful pieces of fashion & sewing history can be a wonderful joy but there are a few cautions to take.
