Vintage Patterns
Since 1980, Pati Palmer has designed and written instructions for 350 patterns for The McCall Pattern Company, starting with the now-legendary Pati Palmer/Susan Pletsch 8-hour blazer pattern that stunned the industry by selling one million copies the first year. For the first time, we will be offering you selections from Pati’s private archive of those patterns. Look for a changing selection, below.

Palmer/Pletsch patterns have been featured on the covers of the McCall pattern catalogs since 1980.
