About us

Welcome to Virtual Vintage Patterns! We're mother and daughter team, Nancy and Erica, living in the striking high desert area of southern Utah. We've been selling online since 2008, and in person before that. We love vintage fashion and sewing patterns!
You can read all about how we came to sell patterns on our blog post here. We offer patterns from the 1920's to today. We are always seeking rare, collectible patterns to add to our store. We love designer fashions, from vintage Vogue to Spadea, Trigere to Miyake, and everything in between.
Nancy is an artist, and when she's not researching and counting pattern pieces, she's at her table sculpting. She started out painting, but one day, bought a box of polymer clay, and the rest was history! She loves tackling new and unusual animals and birds, as well as more familiar subjects. She strives to make her animals look realistic, and a lot of time and care goes into each piece to make it as lifelike as she can. Every piece is one-of-a-kind; there are no molds used. Her sculptures are featured in collections around the world. She sculpts both wildlife and pets, and welcomes commission requests. You can see her work on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/NatureVisions

Erica is a photographer, and when not scanning, editing and uploading new patterns, she loves looking through her lenses to discover new views of the world and the creatures in it. She fell in love with photography way back in high school, and never outgrew it:-) She loves nature and wildlife, and is always searching for beautiful and unique perspectives. She strives to capture the soul of nature through her camera lens. She's sold her photos worldwide. You can see her products on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SightToSoul
