Pattern Archive

August 19, 2009

I don’t think this has been posted here yet, but the Commercial Pattern Archive is having a free week this week:

http://www.uri.edu/library/special_collections/COPA/index.php

Just the search screen made me squeal! Over 86000 pattern images from 1860 until 1970 I think. They even have a small diagram of the pattern pieces with each image.

Such inspiration!

  1. I'm so excited to see you post about this because I work at COPA…it has been heartening to see how fast the news has spread.

  2. OH MY! Thanks Toodles, I'm filling my hard drive with pics!

  3. To register, you go to ORDER NOW, and then in the first section there is a link with a PDF saying "Download Subscription form"

  4. Thanks for sharing this news! What a great resource. I'm new to the vintage sewing scene and hadn't found CoPA yet. I'm finding so many gems there!
