Does anyone have a source for discontinued patterns? I have already tried ebay, and Amazon.

I am searching for a men's nehru style jacket pattern, such as McCall 9484 or Simplicity 7926 from in the mid 1960's. Chest size 36-38 would be ideal.

Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong area, I am a little new to posting on this site! :-)

Here is an eBay listing for McCall's 9484 in a boy's size 14, 32" chest. It might not be worth the effort to resize up to a 36" size, though.

Check out Lanetzliving and Out of the Ashes. I think Lanetzliving is listed under the Merchant Gallery tab here on PR. Do a keyword search for Out of the Ashes. The owners of both these sites are absolutely delightful ladies who sell a plethora of vintage patterns.

Well, there is still nothing available!
I've searched and searched. I am now going to adapt a Kurta pattern that I found to make a Nehru Jacket. Of course, I will have to make up the front flap and lining but it seems within reach.
If anyone comes up with a pattern I'd like to know

Would you be comfortable in using this pattern as a base?
B6844
I modified this pattern to make tai chi performance shirts for both of us. It is very easy to work with.

There's a larger McCall's Nehru jacket here.

If it's too big, just set up a search at ebay for the pattern numbers you are interested in, and ask for emails when they turn up. They always do.

Soooo, I've done the same research online and have found that although there are web pages for the 1960's McCall's 9484 the only one for sale is a size 36. I'm a 42. Not so crazy about upsizing it.
I have purchased the B6844 to alter, I think it has a lining that would be a great help.
Also found Folkwear 135 Which is a Kurta shirt and women's Kamiz Tunic and Churidar Pants pattern. I'll be making the Kurta anyway and may be able to hack the 135 and B6844 to get what I'm looking for which is a lined Nehru Jacket.
Thanks for all the responses!
