old patterns

Convenient pattern viewing areas are set out in all our Lincraft stores so you can leisurely flip through our pattern books and decide the styles best for your needs.

Unlike Flute, I find the news of Lincraft's receivership sad, and I'm don't even sew.
But my mother did, and we'd often call into Lincraft in Main street Croydon (oft, of yore) where we junior misses would pore over the heavy manuscripts in the hushed scholarly tones of haberdashery. Deciding styles so, or leisurely looking at the pictures.

Patterns from the Past - Simplicty 1970's

and whither haberdashery?

Comments: old patterns you can leisurely flip through our pattern books...

I rest my case.

Too leisurely for Lincraft it seems...

& I'm nostalgic at leisure, Harry.

Those lovely 50's dresses could be sewn, but alas, the wasp waists are long gone. We need some 50's underwear, B.

Were they wasp waists for wasted wasps?
Oh dress, where is thy sting?
