discontinued pattern search

nisee | Posted in Patterns on

I have been looking all over the net for an anne klein blouse pattern. lost contents in my move. I think it is more than a year old so I don’t know about the Vogue Customer service, they state: one year supply. Any suggestions?

    Hi, Nisee,

    Do you have the number? People on this forum who might have the same pattern can't help you if they don't have a better description of what you're looking for

    Also: did you ever make the blouse before? There are several books that describe how to make a pattern from a finished garment

    Other than that, good luck!

      Hi, Nisee.Have you checked out vogue patterns online?http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.list.21000.x=1Another good place is Ebay. I was looking through a 5-year-old issue of Threads and found an out-of-print Oscar De La Renta suit pattern that I just HAD to have. It took me about 2 months of lurking on Ebay until it popped up in my size.Catskills

        Thank you, yes, I have posted a note to Vogue patters customer service.  I also called and I have cruised e-bay.  Love that e-bay.  I wish I could remember when that pattern left the catalogue.  Customer service said they do have stock for items less than one year out of print.  Anyway, there are many other avenues I found on the internet.  It was a nice reason to join Threads discussion group, I've enjoyed the magazine for years and love the letters from other sewers. I don't know any sewers in my life and have discovered through Threads the SF Sewing Workshop and their classes.  I finaly learned not to "fear" my overlock and I've had it for years!!

          What is the SF sewing workshop referred to?

            Hi, the San Francisco Sewing Workshop is located in San Francisco, they have a web site.  http://www.thesanfranciscosewingworkshop.com. It is a storefront with lots of classes on all kinds of sewing and fabric related arts.  It has been around for quite a while, I just took two classes and discovered great teachers and quite a few sewers from all around the bay with many of the same issues showing up in this discussion room.

            Hi!  I saw this discussion and I feel your pain!  I'm not sure if this is helpful but there is a website called Sewing Pattern Review.  The URL is:

            http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/search.pl?search=search&patternid=571&CompanyID=51&PatternNumber=2308

            and that particular pattern is 'reviewed' there.  You can go into the person's profile who has posted the review and send them an e-mail.  These are all people who are sewers and have posted info on the site with their information available.  Maybe you can get some information about the pattern this way.  Hope this helps.

            Thank you so much. The search is on!  However, I have been forced to do some creative "doodling" in muslin and using lots of other tools.  I may have done something on the learning curve. And may have gotten the look I wanted.  Still thanks this forum provides such an outlet.

      Hi, thanks for answers, yes pattern is 2308 Vogue, Anne Klein.  I made the wrap version of the shirt quite some time ago and now would like to do the shear over tee shirt and camisole.  I got a small piece of silk georgette, perfect. I have looked around at ways to duplicate the look, I'm sure it is a pretty simple look. Just wanted to see if I could get the pattern to really look at the ease and particulars.

    I love a hunt, you can buy it on ebay. Type in vogue 2908 or whatever the number is....but the blouse is there! Grab it. I could not get the pics to show on PR because the pattern is OOP. Hope the search is ended. Kaaren

      There is a copy on ebay, just type in the number, then review all the categories, and it under crafts,

      1. nisee | | #12

        Thank you for all your help, ebay provided me with some additional lincs to stores and I finaly found the pattern!!On it way to me.  Thank you so much. What does OOP mean. Ive never searched for a pattern before.

        1. user-52356 | | #13

          OOP means out of print. Recent ones might still be available on the
          vogue site, but it can also be used for recent patterns no longer printed. Hope you get it. Kaaren

            Thank you, ordered a lot # with the pattern I want included. Thanks to everyone who sent me in the right direction.

    2. nisee | | #11

      Thank you off to e-bay.

  3. user-172042 | | #15

    Is it not in the Vogue Pattern catalog?

    1. nisee | | #16

      Hi, no its out of print. But things have resolved, I found a group of 4 with the one I want included and in my size. And the others are all of interest. The price was less than one!  Thanks for replies.

      1. user-172042 | | #17

        Good, I'm glad you found it. Hope you can upload a picture of the blouse completed. I'd love to see it and I'll bet others would, also.

        1. nisee | | #18

          For all this search the blouse is 2 pieces, a simple camisole type shirt with an over t-shirt made of silk georgette. Both are without dart, kind of loose fitting. I'm sure that a dart in the camisole is for me and the overblouse has such a nice stretch to the fbric I think this can be without a dart. I just wanted the original pattern to confirm ease. I have the envelop but no pattern pieces, hopefully I'll have all I need soon. As to a picture, yes I have just learned to do the upload from my scanned picture, it will be a a little time but thanks for your participation!
