PLEASE NOTE: ALL MY ITEMS ARE ORIGINAL, VINTAGE AND GENUINE. THEY ARE NOT REPRODUCTIONS.
DESCRIPTION: This delightful absolutely original, UNUSED and vintage ( NOT A REPRO, NOT A COPY, NOT A PRINT )girl's dress pattern made by WELDONS is from my personal family collection and had one family owner ever from new. It dates back to the early 1950's, about 1952/3, is complete and comprises 10 individual transfer pieces which are UNUSED and factory-folded and "Weldon's pre-punched holes " etc. ( no pin marks etc ). There is no envelope as with modern patterns, just one sheet folded into three sections and enclosed within the pattern transfers. NB. THE PURCHASER WILL RECEIVE THE VINTAGE ITEM AS ILLUSTRATED.
The front shiny paper section displays the dress and knickers design, the pattern number 138071, the original price 1/4 1/2 ( One shilling, four and a half old pence ). " 3 and 4 years - chest 22 " . On the RH front fold are diagrams showing the layout of the pattern on the material, sizes and material quantities. On the LH front side are important notes to read before cutting out. ( See photo 3 ).
The reverse inside side indicates full cutting and making instructions. (See photo 4)
The size is as follows:
1) Age 3 - 4 years
2) Chest - 22"
3) Length from nape of neck to finished hem - 19"
Any accessories used to display this item, such as the antique box, chair etc. are not included in the sale. The item weighs 22 g.
CONDITION: The individual transfers are UNUSED and in very good factory-folded condition and complete in number. Because of the open-ended nature of the outer cover, a couple of the transfers may have become a little " crumpled " at the outer edge. The outer cover is generally intact but does display some creases; splits ( partic. at fold edges ); marks; tears; slight age discolouration and a " worn " appearance. All the above are commensurate with a genuine, ( NOT REPRO OR COPY ), original, vintage item of this age, dating back to the 1950's.
SHIPPING/DELIVERY: Delivery will be by " Lettre Prio Internationale ", without tracking. The item will be very carefully packaged in bubble wrap and between cardboard, to conform with the 3cm. depth restriction imposed using this cheaper method of postage.
