Mrs. Depew Vintage is the amalgamation of the two best things on earth: sewing and vintage!
At Mrs. Depew Vintage, we strive to be the Internet's best source of historical sewing patterns, informational e-books, and helpful tutorials. We have a little bit of everything for everyone who is interested in recapturing the beautiful art of handmade that those in the past so excelled at. We offer patterns for Men, Women, and Children in a range of sizes and eras and specialize particularly in patterns and tutorials for hard-to-find historical lingerie!
We're one of the lucky few who can say that they have a great time at work every day. We love what we do and hope that it is reflected in the patterns and vintage items that we provide to our customers.
You can also find us here on Etsy as La Mode du Jour - where we have lots of vintage magazine prints, jewelry and other lovely old thing for sale!
I'm the girl behind the patterns. I was lucky enough to loose my job and discover that I could do my favorite thing for a living! My setback turned into the greatest blessing of my life, next to my awesome husband who I would and do follow anywhere.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
- Custom or personalized orders
- Perishable products (like food or flowers)
- Digital downloads
- Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
- Items on sale
We do not offer refunds for the following reasons:
--If a customer didn't read the item description and wasn't sure what type of pattern was purchased. Customers are responsible for reading and making sure they understand the item being sold before purchase.
--We do not offer refunds because a pattern is beyond a customer's skill level. If you're not sure how hard a pattern is, please feel free to ask us - we're happy to advise.
Exceptions: You are of course entitled to a full refund if you have purchased a duplicate pattern, or in the case of buying the wrong size, exchanges are always just fine.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please feel free to email us, we'd be happy to help. (email@example.com).
We get about 100 emails a day so please don't be upset if we can't get to your questions right away. We try to answer all downloading and printing questions right away.
Please note that the purchase of a sewing pattern from Mrs. Depew Vintage entitles you to the following:
- a great sewing pattern that may not be available anywhere else.
- a prompt reply if you have trouble downloading or printing your pattern (digital orders).
Sadly, this does not include a sewing questions help line. If it did, we would have to hire an extra employee and an intern or two. These things would cost quite a bit of money and the cost of patterns would go up, and that would make everyone very sad. If you have a sewing question, there's a chance that we won't be able to get to it. As much as we would like to help every customer with their sewing questions, there just aren't enough hours in the day. That said, you're still very welcome to write in with your sewing questions. We don't mind and when we have a free moment, we try to help if we can. But if you don't get a timely response, please don't take it personally, there just aren't enough hours in the day and Mrs. Depew will crash and burn if she skips any more meals to try answer just one more email...
