Maggie May Clothing is partnering with Past Patterns Pattern Co. to bring you the absolute BEST in DIY historical sewing! We have drawn from Saundra Altman’s meticulously researched historical sewing patterns and curated for you a collection of sewing patterns specifically suited to reproducing every day wear for ladies and children.

Past Patterns is THE STANDARD in historical pattern making and has been providing us the most authentic and historically accurate sewing patterns since 1979.  We are pairing each carefully selected pattern with our collection of reproduction historical print fabrics to bring you the highest quality materials for all your D.I.Y. needs!

The Petticoat, Drawers and embroidered Chemise were part of the trousseau of Charlotte Larch. The fortunate appearance of these related garments provides us with a reasonable guideline for breadth and length of the different pieces when worn together.
