Fabulous vintage Butterick semi fitted chemise dress pattern. No. 8566, size 14 for 34 bust. Darted waist, notched shawl collar. Package is open so please assume it has been cut (jacket piece has not). There’s no date on the envelope but based on the style, I would guess 1958-60 range. Instructions included and back of envelope is intact
*I LOVE to combine shipping...the second item shipping cost is the highest you will have to pay, I may be able to do even better!*
Most items are shipped First Class when possible to keep cost lower. I try to keep it green with minimal packaging. Gift wrapping or boutique packaging available upon request. Anything else will be shipped Priority Mail. Other options may be available at buyer's request (overnight, UPS, etc). Insurance is optional (1.05 domestic, 1.65 international) but I may choose to include it in some listings at my expense. Delivery confirmation is included on all domestic orders and international orders shipped via priority mail.
I love my international buyers! Buyers in Japan, NZ: Use shipping cost for Australia. Buyers in western Europe, please use shipping cost for UK. Anyplace else, just ask for cost. Please be aware, though, I will NOT falsify customs forms by marking as gift or altering the purchase price of the item. Any customs imposed in buyer's country is strictly the responsibility of the buyer.
I prefer that payment be received within ten days of purchase unless other arrangements are made first. I accept paypal from confirmed addresses, as well as money order (international postal money order only from outside the U.S.). From U.S. buyers, I will accept personal checks but they must clear before shipping. Layaway is also available. Just convo me for details.
Returns & exchanges
Refunds are always accepted for items that have listing errors. I do not accept returns on intimates, holiday items or formal wear. If you want to return an item for poor fit, I cannot refund shipping cost, but will refund purchase price when item is returned in the condition it was shipped to you. All measurements are carefully taken and provided in the listing. If you have a question not answered in the listing, please ask before you bid--you'll be glad you did! :)
I do sell wholesale lots when I have ample stock to do so--just ask! I do not do alterations--I am sorry, but I am a terrible seamstress and you would not be happy with my work. If you want an item that will need altered, please take it to a trusted seamstress/tailor near you. I do maintain a favorite buyers list--if you'd like to be on my email list for 'first dibs' offers just let me know!
