WHAT IS A FOLKWEAR PATTERN?
In the mid-1970s, three California women founded Folkwear to share their passion for finely crafted ethnic clothing with other lovers of fiber and fabric. The garments they collected during travels to other countries served as models for the earliest Folkwear patterns, including #105 Syrian Dress and #106 Turkish Coat. As the three began collecting vintage garments in addition to ethnic, the pattern line expanded to include all types of historic styles from all around the world.
This is one of the first patterns they designed. A great addition to a pattern collection. Patterns issued by the original Folkwear prior to 1986 are rare and very difficult to find. These patterns are collectible for their historic and personal value. Some enthusiastic collectors work toward assembling a collection of the entire line of Folkwear Patterns from the 70’s, and 80’s. Uncut, factory-folded Folkwear Patterns in the original envelopes are more desirable for assembling a collection.
