Looking for an old pattern

Does anyone know where I can find old patterns that aren't in print anymore?

I have to make a dress and it's a McCall's pattern #7426. I can't find
anything in the pattern books that even looks like this.

If I can't find it, I'm going to have to style it myself and I really don't
want to do that.

If someone can offer their thoughts that would be great. Or, if you have
this pattern and you're not using it anymore I wouldn't mind having it. I'm
willing to pay for it and the shipping...

Thanks in advance

Re: Looking for an old pattern
You can Google discontinued sewing patterns and you will get all kinds of
websites to look at. Since you didn't say what it was, dress, slacks, coat,
children's wear, whatever, I didn't search the categories listed. There are
lots of sites and also most have email requests, I'm sure with a little
diligence you could find it.

Good luck,
Val

Hi Addie

Try Ebay and Yahoo auction sites, plus:

www.oldpatterns.com
www.vintagesewingpatterns.com
www.rustyzipper.com

I've had the most luck on Ebay.

If you can link us to a pic somewhere, maybe someone else will know of a
pattern that looks similar.
