A delightful vintage book, packed with information and tips for home sewers, with a definite 1970s slant! There are 80 pages covering all the predictable sewing topics; body measurements, commercial patterns, fabrics, machines, construction techniques, as well as actual patterns and some very groovy machine, hand embroidery and applique ideas. Home wares, clothes and sewing, decorative edges and more - all covered in this little gem. Published in Australia in the early 1970s. Excellent condition throughout.

I try to keep shipping costs to a minimum, so I use regular Australia Post within Australia and regular Air Mail for international orders.
Most patterns are able to be mailed from Australia as a "Large Letter", which means that no customs declaration is required if the letter weighs under 500 grams, and is under 20 mm thick. Large letters will be marked "printed matter only", and no customs declaration is necessary. Currently, there is no tracking or insurance included with regular international Air mail. If you would like added insurance or express post options, please contact me before purchasing for a shipping quote.
As a buyer, you are responsible for paying any import duty and taxes which may apply to your country and / or state. Unfortunately I cannot be responsible for delays caused by customs holds or for customs seizing your purchase. You take the responsibility for knowing what items can be shipped to your country. Also, import taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. Please do not ask me to misrepresent the content of your package.
Please note, I do NOT ship to Italy.
Currently I accept PayPal and direct checkout on Etsy for payment.
If you are in Australia, you can also choose the bank transfer method.
Returns & exchanges
I check all patterns for completeness and condition prior to listing. If you think something is different than it was portrayed, please contact me within 7 days of receiving.
I offer refunds (minus shipping) if you are dissatisfied with a product. But if requested, buyer is responsible for return shipping costs and item must be returned in the same condition it was sent.
I use a digital scanner to image sewing patterns.
Often I try to enhance a pattern, to make the garment illustration more obvious in search results. However, I always include a scan of the pattern in its un-altered state, so that you can see what the packet looks like. (usually image #2 in the listing). If you are purchasing a sewing pattern solely for use as paper ephemera, please use image #2 to check the un-altered appearance; Please be aware that the pictures also form part of the description.
