    Thank you Steve for being understanding, for some strange reason my entire question didn't post! It's simplicity pattern # 5778 from 1973. It's of a dolphin, hippos and alligator. I'm missing the instructions. Thanks again I really appreciate you taking time to try and help!

Hi, I was wondering if I could get instructions for Simplicity Pattern 8608? Thank you!

Hello, Kaity -

In the 90 years through which Simplcity has produced patterns for clothing and other projects, I have found 5 different patterns identified as 8608. There may be more.

I have attached the images of the 5 patterns I found, so you can identify the 8608 pattern you are asking about.

You may wish to contact the Simplicity company directly and ask if the sewing instructions for "your" pattern are in the company archives and if you can purchase a copy of the instructions.

This is the link to the Simplicity Contact Us page:

Note: is a website intended for asking and answering questions on how to go about repairing things.

Best wishes.

Need pattern instructions for 3752 Simplicity apron

Depending on how old that pattern is, you might, possibly, get the primer from the company if you email them or call them.

There are any number of sewing forums where you might post a request and ask if anyone has it and can copy it for you. I got a primer that way once myself. There are some sites that sell vintage and out of print patterns and you might find another copy of the entire thing that way. Easy has some vendors with this kind of stuff. Try a google search.

It's not a very difficult pattern unless you are a beginner sewer. Maybe a friend with more experience could assist you to cut the pieces and assemble them?

McCalls 6692. I need the sewing directions.

You may have to bite the bullet and buy a duplicate of the pattern. The size won't matter since you need only the instructions. You can search the internet and possibly find the pattern at a discount price--perhaps even used would be okay if it includes the instruction pages.
