Reconstructing History patterns are different from other reproduction patterns
We don’t just photocopy old patterns and sell them to you. We use the original patterns as a basis. Then we grade the pattern in modern sizes, up to 48″ bust and 40″ waist, so they’ll fit far more sizes than the original patterns ever did. And we don’t just stick you with the old vague instructions either. Kass personally goes through each pattern, improving the instructions, modernizing the vocabulary and adding in all those things that the old pattern companies assumed their customers knew. Yet we don’t remove the flavour of the original pattern, so you can truly experience using a vintage pattern without all the trouble of resizing and “translating” it.
All sizes (busts 28″ to 48″) come in the same envelope. Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you’ve come to expect from Reconstructing History.
