This is a true original vintage sewing pattern – NOT A COPY! We remove all pattern pieces from the envelope and count to make certain that all pieces are either included or that we tell you which pieces are missing. Where patterns are uncut (unused) this means that we have carefully unfolded the pattern, so you may note the disturbance in the factory folding.
Vintage patterns are sold as is and all sales are final. The sad truth is that patterns are very easily copied and tissue paper is somewhat fragile. We thoroughly check the patterns for completeness prior to your purchase and again prior to shipping so you may be assured that what is described is what you will receive!
