Item details

All of the patterns I'm selling were stored in boxes in an attic so most of them do show wear and yellowing to the envelope. Some patterns are clearly unused and still factory folded and I’m only checking the pattern number to make sure it matches the envelope but not unfolding them to check each piece. The patterns that have been cut and used – I do check the pieces to make sure that they are all there and make note if it is missing anything.

• APPROXIMATE ERA OR DATE: 1940's-1950's
• SIZE: 14
• BUST: 34
• WAIST: 26
• HIP: 36
• CUT/USED: Uncut - factory folded
• ENVELOPE CONDITION: it was only stored in the mailing envelope
• DETAILS: This pattern is in very nice condition. There are no markings on the pattern pieces and it is only perforated. The pattern is to make an apron or a pinafore ladies dress. The mailing envelope has 1 1/2 ¢ postage and was mailed to a woman using no street address - just the name of the town. It was mailed from: The Rural New-Yorker, 333 West 30th St. New York 1, N.Y.

I do combine shipping if more than one item is purchased.

SHIPPING CALCULATOR SHOWN is usually pretty accurate and if it is over by more than $1.00 I'll refund the difference. If you think it may be way off, you can send me your zipcode and I can double-check the rate. I'm using it for packages 1 lb. or over. Some larger oversized packages will go with USPS but large heavy items it is usually cheaper with FedEx.

PLEASE EMAIL WITH ZIPCODE FOR EXACT QUOTE ON LARGER, HEAVIER PACKAGES as the calculator is not capable of figuring FEDEX. The shipping cost listed will be the amount from NY to CA so your shipping cost may be less depending on where you live.

FIRST CLASS MAIL IS A FLAT RATE AS QUOTED. Any package 13 oz. or under is shipped at the flat First Class rate no matter where you are located.

COMBINED SHIPPING COST - YES I do combine shipping to save you money but most times it will NOT show in your shopping cart as Etsy states on the listing. That is a "blurb" that Etsy automatically puts on all listings but does not work with unique vintage items with a wide variety of sizes and weights. It CANNOT be figured accurately with the shipping calculator, so when it says above that it will be calculated when put in your cart - IT WILL NOT be from my shop except for smaller lightweight items and you will have to contact me for an accurate quote. So please don't be alarmed by a high combined shipping cost that will show in your cart (it is NOT my combined rate) - Just send me a list of the items you are interested in, with your zipcode and I'll be happy to figure the ACCURATE cost for you. When you decide to purchase I can reserve a special listing for you with the accurate combined shipping cost.

***Shipping rates are for the Contiguous U.S.
Rates may be higher to Hawaii and Alaska so ask before purchasing. Also some of the larger items because of the extremely high shipping cost will not be shipped to HI.

***International Shipping- I sometimes sell outside the US when my work schedule permits me to get to the Post Office before it closes. Convo for information and a price quote.

Please ask for a shipping quote if you have a APO, FPO address. If the item listed has a shipping quote using FedEx then I can't do it for the same cost through USPS. FedEx will not deliver because it is considered a post office box and they need a physical address.

Items will be shipped within 1-4 business days of receiving payment. If the shipping rate is off and too high once I package the item, I refund any overcharges more than $2.00.


I accept Paypal and also major credit cards through Etsy Direct Checkout. Payments should be immediate but let me know if that's a problem. You don't have to be a member of Paypal to make a payment through them with your credit card. Just proceed through their checkout pages as a "guest."

NY State residents must add 8% sales tax.
