This is a vintage and collectable paper sewing pattern. It is for a set of 3 ladies' dresses. They button from top to bottom and have convertible collars and shoulder pads. There is a choice of lengths. The pattern was made by Butterick in 1988 and the packet states that the pattern is for sizes 12-16. The pattern number is 6083 and is part of the Family Circle collection.
It has, at some point, been cut into its individual pieces. However, it has been checked and it appears to be complete. The original instructions are also still present. This item is in overall good condition.
