Commercial Pattern Archive – Free for 1 Week!

 The latest way to waste your day is on the Commercial Pattern Archives , which has one week free access to ALL of the patterns in their archive, which ends August 25th.  There are over 48,000 patterns from 1860 to 2000, which equals a lot of wasted hours.

I am just dying over the apron patterns, like this one.

Wearing a suit, smoking and BBQing. That guy does it all!

See, this is why I love Twitter. I can always find another way to waste a day on there.  Oh,thanks to Dress A Day for the great post alerting everyone.

    Hi Leslie!

    The instructions from the website say to login use the username: guest and the password: pattern. Select Instructions for directions to get started.

    By the by you need to be able to draft patterns to use these for sewing, but they have a ton of great pictures.

    Enjoy!

    The Mans apron – Sable should make one for Bob, Ruth should make one for Tom, and I will make one for Mike! Now, do you all think we can actually get them to wear it with a business suit? 😉

    PS – It almost looks like Don Draper is getting ready to grill on the BBQ! 🙂
