How often do Vogue OOP patterns go on sale?
I am looking for 8599 Marcy Tilton vest in 14-20 size group.

I can find it in the smaller sizes but not the larger.
On the BMV web site they have it in OOP section but at $27.
I don't want it that bad!

If it's out of print and the sizes are only small ones, that means it truly is out of print and that size is no longer available. Look at Ebay or Etsy.

I know it sounds weird, but have you checked your local fabric stores? I often see older patterns in the drawers at stores like Joanns. Possibly one that didn't sell is still sitting in the drawer...

BMV has it in the large size but like I said $27.
There is one on E-bay but it is the small sizes.
I was hoping for something under $10.
I did check out both JA's and Hancocks.

It is very rare that BMV has OOP patterns on sale. I think I saw it happen once in that last 3 or 4 years, but that could have been a dream I had.
When initially discontinued, there is usually a period that the pattern is marked as clearance instead of OOP, and that is the time that the price will drop, though not as low as the good sale prices. The just-discontinued patterns might be $5. The best sale prices for Vogue might be $3.99, though we just had one that was lower than that, which was a first in my memory. After a bit, perhaps a few weeks or less, the price reverts from clearance to the original retail price. Then the pattern is only available as long as there is any stock. Often, it seems that only the tiniest and the biggest sizes will be in stock. All the middle sizes go first. I don't know if they print them in proportion to the number they could expect to sell or if the print runs cover all the sizes the same.

I wanted a OPP and posted wanted under classfieds. A pattern review member contacted me and arranged to send to me. I thought I would send her a small payment through PayPal I did and she returned and said she was happy to just send. I expect the pattern any day.

Thank you to the wonderful Rhonda

Maybe you could try a posting "WANTED"

Good luck.

Thanks kkkkaty.
I must not want it bad enough as I am hesitating at the $11 price.
Oh well.
I am on a pattern fast along with being on the fabric fast so it is probably for the best.
