Additional policies

Note that items are vintage in nature, and so expect them to have seen their years. I always do my best to describe the items honestly and accurately, to avoid any confusion.

Because most of my sewing patterns are vintage and pre-owned, I check each vintage sewing pattern for completeness, for the pattern pieces and the instruction sheets. ALL PATTERNS have all pieces and instructions sheets UNLESS SPECIFICALLY NOTED.

I live in a smoke-free home, and if patterns have a smokey smell I will disclose it in the listing. Feel free to contact me with any concerns at all.

I am happy to create custom listings upon request.

I can also RESERVE a pattern for you, at your request, for up to 2 weeks. After this time it will go back into my normal listings if it is not purchased.
