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.
The pattern comes in the original packaging along with the original pattern instructions. Gently used, with minimal wear and tear. Pattern pieces are cut straight with all pieces in great condition.
Size descriptions and measurements in the photos.
This pattern is rare and sought after by collectors.
