I have a collection of 35 patterns from the mid- to late-1980s. None of them have the colored envelopes. The 24 Vogue women's clothing patterns all have complete instructions. The 10 Butterick women's clothing patterns are without the instructions. There is also one Vogue craft pattern, with instructions, for cutwork placemats.
Sorry, but you will have to use the patterns themselves to determine yardage, notions, etc.
A treasure trove. You can see from the picture above that the patterns can still be stylish and classic, depending on your choice of fabrics, notions, etc. This bag of patterns weighs almost four pounds.
Please see the second image above for a list of the patterns. Have fun!
