A pattern notcher is a common tool used in pattern making and sewing.  It ensures accurate markings of your pattern key points by creating a notch so you can correctly align pattern pieces.  Notches measure 1/16″ x 1/4″ (0.16cm x 0.6cm)  This marking system is an alternative to the diamond/triangle markings seen in most commercially available patterns such as Vogue, Butterick or McCalls.

This precise tool is forged metal with a spring loaded handle.
