This is a digital, e-book copy of Chiffons Pattern Catalog from 1914. 

This has to be one of the best finds of my pattern-hunting career, printed just 3 months before the breakout of WWI.


Chiffons was a ladies' fashion magazine printed in France during the 1900s to early 1920's. Editions of Chiffons are hard-to-find in general. This is not a Chiffons magazine. This is their SEWING PATTERN CATALOG - and it even features couture designers!

The magazines and pattern catalog were also printed with English translations along with the French descriptions - as Chiffons was also sold in London. The patterns were available cut to size through a mail order service - essentially they were scarce then, and impossible to find now.

This catalog is 60 large-format pages digitally restored to their former glory. Some are in color, some in black and white, with nearly all of the designs taking up a full-length of the page! Designs include everything for ladies - Dresses, coats, hats, evening gowns, BALL gowns, blouses, and lingerie.
