Folk Patterns

Our folk patterns from around the world include patterns from six continents and 32 countries!  These Folkwear patterns are based on authentic and historic garments worn by "folk" in countries around the world and collected over the last 50 years. Traditional patterns make wonderful and unique clothing that is versatile, practical, and beautiful.  Patterns come with historic and cultural lore and information, and most come with information on traditional embellishment and handwork or hand sewn details.  You can make a culturally and historically accurate outfit, learn a traditional construction technique or create or a garment for every-day-wear.  These patterns are fun and easy to use!
