We are pleased to announce that we have placed an order for the first new batch of Larkin & Smith patterns! Many of you have asked which sewing patterns will be back in stock and when. We are starting small by re-releasing two of the most popular Larkin & Smith patterns; the English Gown and the Front and Back Lacing Stays. Multiple sizes will be in stock. There will be an announcement once they have been added to the website. (Should be before the end of the month!)
We are planning to restock additional patterns early next year and will be asking for suggestions on which patterns customers will like to have available next. Please watch our social media pages for polls and additional information.
Printing costs mean a sizeable investment up front so it makes the most financial sense for us to start with just a few patterns and add from there. We are considering pre-sales and how best to manage them for the shop. At this time there are no plans for digital patterns but as many have asked, it is something we will look into and consider for the future.
Due do Covid-related shipping delays, Brexit, etc., we are only shipping offering U.S. shipping at this time but hope to offer international shipping early in the new year. Please note that the USPS has also increased shipping rates for the upcoming holiday season. We will do our best to ship using the most affordable rates, refunding over charges when necessary, but have no control over the rise in shipping costs. Nor can we control USPS shipping delays as a result of the holiday rush, bad weather, etc. If ordering something as a gift for the holidays we advise ordering sooner rather than later.
