The pattern envelope is complete with all 8 pattern pieces and instructions. One is uncut, the other 7 pieces are cut. One has been adjusted for length, but the adjusted portion is included in the envelope and could be reattached.
The pattern envelope itself is in fair to mediocre condition with a couple of lengthy tears that sweep across the front of the envelope. There are also a number of worn spots/tiny tears elsewhere along the edges and mild discoloration due to age. Special care will be taken to keep this vintage pattern protected during the shipping process. The pattern is being kept in an archival sleeve and will be shipped in it. Cardboard is used to stabilize the pattern during shipping, as well as a padded envelope.
The pattern is being kept in a non smoking environment.
I ship within 1 to 2 business days after receiving payment, and ship both in the U.S. and internationally. Great care is taken to protect the vintage patterns for shipping. I place the pattern in an archival sleeve and ship pattern(s) in a bubble mailer or box depending on the size of order. I also use cardboard to stabilize the pattern during shipping.
