The Butterick Publishing Company was founded in 1863 by Ebenezer Butterick and forever changed the world of sewing by mass producing and distributing the first graded sewing patterns. In 2001 The Pattern Company acquired both Butterick and Patterns.
Sewing patterns were, in a sense, the original fast fashion: a quick, affordable, stylish option before the advent of the $20 H&M dress. One of the company’s greatest hits is a dress called the Walkaway, a Butterick pattern from 1952.
