What Fun! This Wrap and Tie Blouse packs LOTS of Style, with the simplest of designs. It only has one main pattern piece for the blouse, and 3 additional pieces for the facings, binding and ties. It also comes with a complete and unused transfer to put the embroidery design on the top as shown.
Marian Martin Patterns were advertised in Newspapers around the country, and offered a broad assortment of Fashionable styles to be sent to Home Sewers thru the mail.
Size 18: ALWAYS go by the pattern MEASUREMENTS, as sizing changes from year to year, and from company to company: Measurements: Bust: 36" Waist: Adjustable with Ties
Used, complete. I carefully open, count, and check all of my patterns before listing. (If a pattern is in Factory Folds, I will not unfold it.)
Condition: This pattern is in Good Vintage Condition. It HAS been used, as there are light pencil marks on the main pattern piece. There were two small tears on the tissue, which I repaired with Archival Document Repair Tape (NOT "scotch" tape). The Flap is intact. Instructions had one small tear, also repaired with Archival Document Repair Tape.
That being said, ALL OF MY PATTERNS ARE SOLD AS IS. There are NO RETURNS on vintage sewing patterns. Sewing patterns are "EPHEMERA", which means that they were meant to be used, and then thrown away. EVEN THE BEST PATTERNS CAN HAVE "ISSUES". Tiny tears, big tears, stains, rips, foxing, obscured images.

To cut down on stress to fragile envelopes, pattern pieces won’t always be put back in their envelopes, but in this case they WILL be sent in the same archival sleeve.
This is a smaller pattern size envelope than the standard: 5.25" x 8"
