They should be 10 slots until they are retroactively renamed to "Deluxe Sewing Kit".

-Large sewing kits (8 slot) are sold on vendors until 2001.
-At that time, current Large sewing kits become deluxe sewing kits (10 slot)
-Another "Large Sewing Kit" appears on vendors at that time (8 slot)

I was mistaken; you are correct. I thought they were 10 slots to begin with and nerfed early on in EQ classic.
Way back at the dawn of time, two kinds of tailoring kits were available from vendors: large (8 slots) and small (2 slots). Then, when cultural tailoring (for halflings, erudites, and wood elves) was added, new kits (10 slots) were introduced that could only be used by those two races to make their cultural armors. When Velious came out, another kit was made available from stores in Velious cities, the coldain tanning kit (8 slots) that must be used to make the Velious tailored armors.
Then, because they were about to introduce old world armor that had more than 8 ingredients, the old world original large kits were increased to have 10 slots. But then, people started complaining more loudly because this change meant that the large tailoring kits had as many slots as tailored backpacks but weighed less and held bigger items. So, the Powers That Be decided to remove the 10 slot tailoring kits from vendors. The problem was that they couldn't simply change them back to 8 slots, because that would cause problems for people who had items in all 10 slots. So, they changed the existing 10-slot large kits into a new item, Deluxe kits, and changed vendors back to the original large kits with only 8 slots.
Therefore, the only deluxe tailoring kits in existance are ones that players had in their possession when these changes were made. If you find them on a vendor, it is because someone sold it to that vendor. For those who need 10 slots for the recipes with more than 8 ingredients (Wu's Fighting armor), they also added Looms to some cities. Looms are stationary containers that you go to in a city and use on the spot, like ovens or brew barrels or forges.
