So, this pattern is from the 1950's for a Clown Costume, all the pieces are cut and included and the instructions are also enclosed. The envelope is torn and tattered and yellowed. Well, it is about 60 years old and it's paper! It's so amazing how these are still in existence. This is a size Medium and the measurements are size 6 - 8, Chest 24 - 26, and ankle length is 40. I think this is a child's size Medium by the measurements given.
Even if you don't buy it to sew, get it for the History!
