Description

The development and marketing of patterns for the home sewer in the United States is a highly concentrated market. A few large firms dominate the pattern-making industry today, which began more than 150 years ago. Prior to the availability of mass-produced ready-to-wear (RTW) apparel, commercial sewing patterns were first created as a way to assist people in sewing their own clothing at home.
