Vintage Sewing Pattern Advance (no number) Misses' Apron
Sewing details: Included are pattern pieces and instructions for sewing the Advance Buttons and Bows Apron pictured. This very cool pattern was originally distributed compliments of J.C. Penney Company, Inc. to promote the hit song "Buttons and Bows" in the Paramount film "The Paleface," starring Bob Hope and Jane Russell.
The half apron has ruffles, pouch or regular pockets, rick-rack trim, and bow accents.
Size: The only info about sizing is that it is "one size."
Copyright date: Not given, but the movie and song came out in the year 1948, so I imagine it's the same.
Condition: Complete, uncut and in original folds. The pieces are unprinted. The envelope has some wear, plus some tanning to the inside. It's very nice over all, especially for its age.
Instructions are always present unless stated otherwise.
Please note that this listing is for a sewing pattern (patron de couture; patron de costura; modello di cucitura; Schnittmuster; naaipatroon), not for any finished item or items.
Shipping costs are for USPS First Class and First Class International, unless otherwise stated in the listing. You can upgrade to Priority if you like. For international shipping, that is quite a bit more these days, even for a Flat Rate envelope. Just convo me if you'd like more information about those rates.
All shipping within the U.S. includes free delivery confirmation.
For international shipping, I must comply with customs regulations, which means I must designate purchases as merchandise and must state their sold-for value.
Payment is due within three days of an item's purchase, unless other arrangements are made.
Returns & exchanges
Satisfaction guarantee: I check all cut patterns I list, unless otherwise stated. I don't unfold patterns that, upon close inspection, look to be complete and uncut. However, your satisfaction is fully guaranteed in case I am ever wrong about the completeness of a pattern, or about any important consideration regarding any item. If you ever have even a small problem with anything you've bought from me, please let me know -- I'll do my best to make it right!
Additionally, I offer my own safe-shipping guarantee (items damaged in shipping may need to be returned to me before reimbursement). This means there's never a need for the buyer to pay for insurance for an inexpensive purchase.
In the rare event that an item is lost in transit, I (or the buyer) need(s) to file a claim with USPS in order to be reimbursed. This has only happened once in all the years I've been selling and shipping.
Please note that I must declare the actual purchase price of any international purchases on the customs form, and must provide any other information required by law.
