Tailoring patterns are beautiful documents

My friend and fellow tailoring enthusiast Sven Raphael Schneider from the Gentlemen’s Gazette alerted me that a tailor’s pattern archive was up for grabs on e-bay. I promptly placed my bid and acquired these beautiful patterns of womenswear overcoats, jackets and other outerwear garments. The gentleman who dropped them told me that they belonged to his father who worked with east-end designers. His name was Mr. Eric William John Moore and he studied at (possibly) the London College of Fashion in the 1930’s. I am so lucky to acquire them. I can only do justice to this man’s professional life as a pattern cutter by creating art.
