Policies on comments, image use, etc.


Comments are moderated. I delete all spam and disrespectful comments.

No soliciting, no advertising.

“Wanted” ads and other comments soliciting patterns will not be posted; comments containing advertising will be deleted. For shopping-related questions, try the wiki.

No reproductions.

I do not sell, nor do I plan to sell repros (copies) of the vintage patterns featured on this site, so please don’t ask.


I don’t use affiliate links. This is an independent, advertising-free blog.


I try to keep links up to date, but occasionally miss noticing when a site is colonized by spammers (or worse). Should you find any inappropriate link on my blog, please let me know so I can address the problem immediately.

Fashion photography and illustrations are shown under Editorial Use; altering and/or re-posting these images for commercial purposes is not permitted—even if they turn up in an image search.

Intellectual property theft isn’t cool.
