This is a vintage Butterick sewing pattern, number 5597 that makes a skirt, pants and vest. The skirt and pants have a high shaped waistband with belt loops. The skirt can be made with optional patch pockets and it buttons down the front. The pants have front zip with mock fly.
The pattern has beans unused and is still factory folded in the envelope with the instruction sheet. The envelope is in good condition, with only very minor wear. See the photo for size measurements and yardage requirements.
It is a junior size 9 which fits 30.5" bust, 24" waist and 33.5" hip.
There is no copyright, so I am dating it by the style and printed price on the envelope.
I try to estimate shipping costs as closely as possible. I will refund any excess of more than $1.
International shipping note: I can send up to 8 ounces for the same postage outside of the US. That usually means that I can send two Vogue large envelope patterns for the same shipping fee and up to three small envelope patterns for the same fee. Please email if you would like me to make a custom listing for you. If you purchase 'as listed', I will refund the excess postage promptly!
We generally use the USPS, First Class mail, when possible, and use lightweight (but durable) shipping materials to save on postage. We do not include a printout of your order to minimize weight and also to save paper.
Insurance is optional.
We have had very good luck, (so far, knock wood) with our packages arriving, but we cannot be responsible after we tender the package to the post office.
We try to ship the next business day after payment is received through Paypal and money orders. We reserve the right to ship after payment by personal check clears.
Payment is generally expected within 7 days, however, please contact us to request different arrangements.
Returns & exchanges
We cannot be responsible for loss if insurance is not purchased. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, you may return it for a refund, minus shipping fees within 30 days. If we have inadvertently erred in the description of the item or condition, we will refund the shipping costs upon receipt and confirmation of the issue.
We strive to describe our items accurately and disclose any known flaws. If we miss something, please bring it to our attention. Our goal is to have complete customer satisfaction!
