Item details

SHIPPING NOTE - I'll be in and out of town from now until Oct. 30, so shipping might be slower than usual. Still 5 business days at most to leave my studio, but if your purchase is 'time sensitive', please contact me before you buy so that neither of us is disappointed.

This is one of the cutest clown costumes I've seen - it looks like a fuller cut and and maybe a little more complex than the easy, 2 hour 'modern' versions.

It consists of a billowy jumpsuit with ruffled wrist and ankle cuffs (separate cut pieces - not simply gathered ends of the jumpsuit). Included is a pattern for the big cone hat, and a pattern for the tailed vest (for when the clown mocks the Ringmaster!)

Size Child's Large
Chest 28 - 30
Waist 24 - 25

If you're not a good stitcher, you may want to ask for some help or have someone with more experience tackle this. It's not a beginners' pattern.

Dated 1954.

The envelope is in bad shaped and totally torn open. All pattern pieces and instructions are complete.

I offer these patterns as is. Please feel free to ask questions before you decide to purchase. Patterns are not refundable except in the case of non-delivery.

I will ship to most countries, but if you're not certain please feel free to contact me before you purchase. Unfortunately, insurance through the US Postal System is not available except at the most expensive shipping rates for mailing internationally.

If my shipping cost estimate was over the actual cost by more than $2.00, I will refund the overage to you.

I'm happy to combine shipping for items if you purchase them at the same time.

I don't accept exchanges or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
My items are sold 'as is', in vintage, pre-owned and / or used condition. I try to describe any problems that I find, and I will only refund if I have grossly misrepresented the condition or size of an item. In this situation, I will refund only after the item has been returned to me (and received) in the condition that it was shipped in.

Etsy policy requires that Sellers be responsible for refunds due to shipping loss or damage. Given this reality, I am adding appropriate insurance to all shipping prices in order to protect both of us. For Priority Mailing, this would mean any item valued over $50 US. (As I am selling unique items, I'm not able to offer an identical or similar replacement, obviously.)

In the rare case that your parcel arrives damaged, or the item has been damaged in transit, you MUST take photos of the damage and upload them for me ASAP, in order for me to file an insurance claim. I'm sorry, but no photos = no refunds.

Additional policies

If you are purchasing with a deadline in mind, please check with me first to be sure that I can accommodate your needs. It will save disappointment on both of our sides. (For instance, holiday or birthday gifts, film shoot, rehearsal needs, etc.)
