G'day folks,

I'm looking for a copy of a 1990s/2000s McCall's pattern:
https://www.amazon.ca/McCalls-2219-Pattern-Dresses-Lengths/dp/B013NMRHZ2

Largest size range - 14, 16, 18.

It's not on Etsy or Ebay at the moment so if you have one you wouldn't mind parting with that would be great.

I'm in Australia.

Cheers,
Sarah

Interesting how things sort of converge. I was just watching the latest installment of Janet Pray's Facebook series about patterns. She discussed how one may want to be able to grade patterns if, for example, a larger (or smaller) size is needed than what the pattern is drafted at.

If you have a way to access facebook, just look for Islander Sewing, and you'll be able to see what she posted. https://stores.islandersewing.com/videos/

Which brings me to this point. Here's an ebay listing for the pattern you're looking for: https://www.ebay.com/itm/McCalls-2219-Misses-2-Hour-Bias-Dresses-Sewing-Pattern-Size-4-6-8-Uncut/372969041009?hash=item56d6afec71:g:HZsAAOSwqIldqgLY

Admittedly, it's not the size you want. But, if you are game and willing to try grading the pattern to your needs (while you wait for someone to post the size you need) it might be a way to get the pattern and perhaps learn a new skill.

Thanks for the link, @sewsy, but unfortunately that seller doesn't ship to Australia.

I'd love to learn to grade someday but at the moment it's a bit beyond me (not putting myself down - I have a medical condition that makes it hard to learn new skills).

@Turquoise, thanks for the suggestion. I'll have a look at that one as well.
