Returns & exchanges
If the item is not suitable or you wish to cancel, please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange this
Goods returned must be in the same condition they were sent out in. Vintage patterns by their very nature will not be perfect so unless I have grossly misrepresented the facts about the pattern (which I jolly well hope not) the return postage is not reimbursed
In the case of the unused patterns, unless they are faulty I cannot accept these back if they have been used by the recipient
