Welcome to Old Paper Patterns

Welcome to Old Paper Patterns. 

I realised recently how many paper patterns are out there and how many beautiful out of print patterns head to landfill or recycling becasue people do see that they have any value.    Now I have catlalogued scanned and listed patterns for sale.  Envelope condition varies from Excellent to Torn and Damaged and some with no envelope at all..  When going through these patterns I realised that some are 50+ Years Old and to stand the test of time and still be uncut and intact at this time is remarkable.   I have opened each envelope unless factory sealed and glanced at the contents inside.  All patterns are as listed but its not an exact science.

Listings will continue to be updated on a regular basis as new stock is sought.

When looking through the listings you will find that I have classified patterns in 3 ways Uncut, Cut to Size and Cut to Specific Size. 

Postage will be calculated on Australia Post charges.  Prices will vary depending on Quantity.   

I hope you enjoy Old Paper Patterns and if you have any questions Please dont hesitate to message me.

Hi Everyone,

Winter is well and truly upon us even in Cairns.  I have listed some new winter clothing for your sewing needs.  I am currently working on adding some new patterns to the site.  When I started working on this site I knew that vintage was very important but there are not many that cater the more recent out of print patterns.   I have found a fantastic selection recently and will be adding those to the site over the next 2 weeks.   Thank you for your ongoing support.




If you are interested in rehoming your patterns I am always happy to chat to you.   

Overseas Customers are welcome to contact me for a postage quote.  Look forward to hearing from you.
