Hollywood Patterns – March 1941

Another free download for you! This mini catalog by Hollywood Patterns contains eight pages of vintage sewing inspiration from March, 1941.

To purchase original catalogs (just like this one!) and sewing patterns, please visit Judy at vintage4me2.


Please feel free to link to this page, pin this page, or send your friends here. Please do not redistribute, re-post, or sell these downloads (in whole or part) anywhere else. I have made it available FREE for you here on Lucky Lucille!


If you appreciate these little peeks into Fashion/Sewing history as much as I do, a cuppa’ coffee makes an excellent thank you. 😉 😉 Donate only if you want to, of course!




To open the eBook you must click the download button from an iPad or iPhone, in Safari browser, with iBooks installed. A new browser window will open and will appear blank for several seconds. It’s a pretty large file so the screen will look as if nothing is happening as the file loads, but soon you will be prompted to open the eBook in iBooks or a similar application, from that browser window.


The PDF should open on any computer, tablet, and/or browser, but may take a little while to load. Again, the images are large. When the browser window opens, click the icon in the top toolbar (second icon in from the far right) to download and save the PDF.

Happy Reading!

    Wow, the first thing that struck me was the dept store name, JJ Newberry Co. One of my favorite vintage/ antique destinations is a former JJ Newberry in Saugerties NyY. Have purchased vintage sewing stuff there recently. They live on

  • I have that Princess coat pattern, #599. I found it in a box of antique patterns, many were mail order, at a thrift shop last month.

    • Rochelle

      Wow, really? That’s so neat!

  • Thank you! As a vintage pattern seller, these resources are always so helpful – and just plain fun to look at. I have to say I’m a fan of the defined midriff dress and the princesse coat too. Thanks for your time making this available!
