PATTERN: McCall's 8555 SIZE: For 18-inch dolls CONDITION: New; wear to envelope DATE: 1996 ~~~~~~~ My inventory of 10,000+ patterns consists of vintage and newer out-of-print patterns no longer being manufactured by the pattern companies. Below are a few guidelines regarding their condition. All of my inventory is stored in a smoke-free, pet-free, moisture-free environment, but the majority of my older patterns have had previous homes, so keep that in mind when purchasing vintage patterns. Also, because of their age, vintage pattern envelopes are in varying conditions. The picture shown will be the actual pattern you receive, so you will be able to see the condition of the envelope. ~~~~~~~ NEW = new old stock. As above, all patterns are either vintage or new out-of-print patterns. New indicates that the pattern pieces are uncut and still in factory folds. I sometimes take out the instruction sheets to date the pattern if the date is not on the outer envelope. ~~~~~~~ CUT = means the pattern has been used, the tissue paper has been unfolded, and pieces have been cut apart. ~~~~~~~ COMPLETE = the pattern has been used, but I have personally opened the pattern and counted all pieces to ensure that nothing is missing.
