There is something rather special & glamorous about original vintage patterns. (That's probably why we love to collect them!) All our sewing patterns, are cut (unless otherwise stated) and are in preloved vintage condition. We have counted the pattern pieces and neatly refolded them. As you can see by this photo the pattern cover has some scattered foxing.
They may have; Creases & folds from normal use, Age appropriate signs of aging eg: small amount of confined foxing or tanning Small marks and scuffs, small dog ears etc Original owners name may be present on cover (see photo) Original price tags may be present or marks from pricing that has been removed.
We do NOT list a pattern if it is unattractive or has; pages (or parts of pages) missing, major rips or tears, ring binder holes, children's scribble, or excessive staining or soiling. Some patterns 60 yrs+ (from the 1940's/50's) may have neat confined spine split in a small section but front cover will still be firmly attached)
This is not a PDF or copy, it is the original authentic piece.
We do not enhance our photos in any way (other than cropping for collaging) in order to give you an accurate indication of the items condition.
