Simplicity printed their copyright dates on their instruction sheets with the exception of the early 1940's when they printed it on the front of the envelope.Their logo went through lots of changes through the years with the only exception being its location on the left side of the envelope.Well I completely understand that aspect because it drives me bonkers not being able to figure a year out but I have also noticed that any website I go to never gives an overly clear picture of multiple pattern companies.I've compiled information on Advance, Butterick, Du Barry, Hollywood, Mc Call and Simplicity patterns from the internet into one place so hopefully this helps someone trying to date a pattern.After that the logo was written in script and kept in the upper left hand corner.
These are difficult to date because some have B, D, or T after their Pattern number.
We have vintage Simplicity patterns for all types of fashions including dresses, blouses, skirts, pants, suits, sleepwear, crafts & costumes.
The Advance Pattern Company released sewing patterns under the Advance brand name from 1933 until 1966.
and they also had patterns from the 1930's with four stars below the logo on the left hand side.
Some patterns lacked any of these other special markings.
In the early 1930's the logo was a black with white lettering and featured a woman with a wig and three feathers in her hair.
