Vintage is our favorite
in any pattern company book
will you find so many
One of my first Lutterloh purchases was from an estate sale.
It was a gold box full of 1950's & 1960's supplements.
I was very new to Lutterloh patterns, in that box a world of sewing was
open to the previous owner and now myself! There were ball gowns,
baby nappies, robes, aprons, men's shirts, kids play clothes, women's dresses, on
and on the patterns went.
Clearly Lutteloh was a system designed to dress a whole household, a family!
The box came from Brazil, the women had used many of the patterns,
her notes still on the pages captured in time.
I felt she left a window into a vintage moment.
Every photo in my collage is a Lutterloh pattern from another time.
I own all of these pattern books.
Patterns for every aspect of life.
There is a long history in Lutterloh patterns.
Collected in each book pieces of an era.
My greatest pleasure is spending an evening
Looking at the vintage Lutterloh pattern books!
