Groovy 1970s womens sewing pattern 4651 by Butterick in size 14 (see actual measurements below) Is for pullover top and flared skirt AND for a high-fit and flare dress.
Sized for moderate stretch knits only
Pattern is UNCUT w/ factory folds and has the original factory sewing instruction booklet included. This is an ORIGINAL pattern printed on tissue paper. It is NOT a reproduction or a copied digital file.
Contains 9 pattern pieces
Description is: High fitted and flared dress in just below mid-knee length. ALSO top with v-neck with or without contrast inset (this is the little piece of fabric underneath the V-neck), long pointed collar , short sleeves and topstitching. Below mid-knee length skirt has elastic waistline.
Suggested fabrics per Butterick can be cotton knits, jersey, stretch terry cloth or stretch velour
This is a fairly rare pattern as I only have seen a few of these ever posted (and this one is in unused factory folded condition)
Envelope is in very good condition with minor wrinkles & one pink magic marker "X" mark. This mark was probably put on by the initial retail seller of the pattern. Actual pattern in mint condition (uncut). Note: the photo on the front of the envelope is bad from the original Butterick photo - this is not the fault of my current photo. Guess that is what happened in the "old days" before photoshop, digital images, etc....

Save on shipping by purchasing multiple items from my Frugal Fairy Vintage shop located in Michigan, USA.
International shipping is possible for some countries. Just contact me through Etsy's e-mail system with your location & I'll get right back to you with a shipping price quote specific to your country. Shipping costs from the USA have increased by a large amount in recent years, so unfortunately these costs have to be passed onto the customers.
This shop offers combined shipping, which means that a 2nd or 3rd item purchased from the Frugal Fairy Vintage shop will be much cheaper to ship. Often the total weight is difficult to determine ahead of time depending on the items purchased. If at the time of shipping (for combined items), the total cost is less than the pre-paid shipping price, a refund will be issued to the customer for the difference. Refunds will apply only on the Combined Shipping where multiple items are shipped out in the same box or envelope.
Items will be shipped via the U.S. Postal Service. The shipping rates listed are for standard USPS (US Post Office). I also provide a package tracking number from USPS on all orders. This number can be looked up on the USPS.com website & it will tell you exactly where your package is during the whole process of the shipment from Michigan to your location.
If you need a RUSH item by a specific date, please contact me before checking out and we can explore the cost of Priority Mail (USPS) or other vendors like Fed Ex or UPS. Also, the Post Office offers Express shipping which is much faster, but is also rather expensive. Super fast shipping must be mutually agreed upon by the buyer & Frugal Fairy Vintage prior to shipment because of the large extra costs involved. Because of this fact, there will be an extra charge to the customer for a super fast shipping option. Your request may not be possible depending on your location and time of day, as there are cut-off times and differences of shipping times based on postal zones. These things are determined by the shippers and are out of the control of the Frugal Fairy Vintage shop. I do my best to honor special requests from customers. Over the past 5 years I have been able to "save the day" many times by getting packages there in time for special events.
Recycled packaging (boxes, bubble wrap, newspaper etc.) may be used for shipping purposes. If this is not acceptable, please put a comment in the comment section when the order is placed. Gift wrapping is also possible, but please be specific as to your request.
I will try to get shipments to the post office within 24-48 hours on USPS business days of operation. Customers will be notified if there will be an unavoidable delay (due to weather, sickness, etc.) Shipping will be discounted for multiple items as stated above. If you have questions, please contact me through the Etsy e-mail system. I really like to keep shipping costs to a minimum, so it helps to work with customers and to be creative in order to deal with this necessary evil.
Sales sent to Michigan residents will be charged a 6% sales tax. This is required per state law.
Returns & exchanges
I will do my best to describe the items as completely as possible and note any and all imperfections (no matter how small). Items in this shop are vintage (at least 20 yrs old) so there could be some general fading, light signs of wear, etc. Most of these items are very old and have been used/worn, therefore it is important to note the stated condition in each specific item listing description.
Should you be unhappy with your purchase, items can be returned within 10 DAYS of receipt date for a refund of the item cost. The seller (Frugal Fairy Vintage shop) must be contacted as soon as possible to be notified of the return. Buyer will be responsible for shipping costs both ways - initial and return shipping. Please note this policy! This prevents people from being tempted to buy items, use them for an event, and then return them.
I am happy to provide additional photos or descriptions of items prior to purchase. Just send me an e-mail through Etsy and I usually respond quite quickly to your request. I do care about good customer service!
Purchased items CANNOT be worn or used for your: party / event / wedding / photo shoot and then returned. Items are sent out to you in clean condition. Dirty or damaged items will NOT be refunded to the customer. I do have many photos of each item in the condition that it was shipped out. Therefore, proof is available to show when an item has been used for an event & then was subsequently returned. It is not the policy or intent of this shop to provide for free rental service on vintage items.
Please feel free to ask me any questions prior to purchasing an item. I do understand that it is sometimes difficult to make a purchase decision based on tiny little photos and written descriptions, therefore I am happy to provide as much information to you as humanly possible.... It is important for customers to be happy with their one-of-a-kind vintage item purchase!
Does Frugal Fairy Vintage ship INTERNATIONALLY (outside USA)? Yes!! Over the past 5 years I have shipped to 14 countries outside the USA. For Canada, Europe and Australia shipping tracking is available through the US Postal Service. This is my preferred method of shipping. If you do not see your location on the list of destinations at checkout, please send me an e-mail through the Etsy system. I will be happy to explore shipping to your location. Please be aware that some countries have strict import restrictions. The customer is always responsible to pay all import taxes, duties and fees. I will never falsely fill out customs forms to avoid taxes in the receiving country as this is against the law.
