Lovely L took great care to keep her sewing patterns in excellent condition. She lived in the same house for 75 years and her sewing room was beautifully organized. As a result, most of her patterns sat neatly on a shelf for decades, having only been used once or twice. (See the shop page for more of the story)
Finding these collectible patterns in such good condition really is a treasure.
This pattern comes in the original envelope, with minimal wear and tear. Pattern pieces are cut straight with all pieces in great condition.
