Free access to the Commercial Pattern Archive…

But only for one week so you’d better get your skates on! This resource has lots of patterns to look at for knitting, crochet, sewing, going back to 1860. You know I like patterns!

Have fun browsing!

UPDATE: Sorry chaps, realised I didn’t post the link – see what being sleepy does for your blogging power! Go here and click login. The search is very comprehensive… even down to the year! 1885 cashmere dress anyone?

Have fun!


P.s. Sorry chaps, no Etsy Wednedsay this week because I’ve been so busy back at work. I’ve had two months’ holiday (though it feels like a week) and it’s amazing how tired I am when I get home from work – I just want to sleep. I’ll be right as rain next week :)



  1. You so TOTALLY Rock, Beccy! Thanks for passing this on. I will be hard pressed to concentrate on work and not nip over there to look around!

  2. This is probably a dumb question... but how do I get to this amazing archive? I've got tons of housework to do and I need to procrastinate!

    Thank you Beccy.
