Feature Friday: Revival Designed Patterns


It’s time for the first Feature Friday of 2021! Are you looking for some sewing inspiration for the new year? Then this week’s feature has you covered.

Revival Designed Patterns is the latest endeavor from Janyce Hill, founder of the Vintage Pattern Lending Library. Janyce has been reproducing patterns since the mid-1990s, and she has an archive of over 50,000 patterns from the 1860s to the 1950s to use as source material for her new releases.

Fueled by a love of vintage fashion, Revival Designed offers vintage reproduction patterns graded into a wide range of sizes, including plus sizes! They even offer a service where, in exchange for the right to sell copies, they will grade a vintage pattern to your size for free and return the original.

With a focus on the 1920s to the 1940s, Revival Designed features variety of garments, from separates to dresses to lounge wear. There is even a selection of free pattern downloads available right now. Plus, the shop carries both printed and PDF versions of their patterns, so you can choose whichever format you like best.
