This listing is for the above PDF pattern, available by Instant Download (in the Downloads section of your Etsy account). I can also email it to you instead if requested.



The images on Etsy are lower resolution than the file you'll be receiving.
All my vintage patterns are out of copyright (public domain) and by purchasing a pattern, you’ve ensured that another copy exists, somewhere in the world. Public domain means you can make anything from the pattern to sell (just please don't resell or pirate the PDF, thanks!).

These patterns have been pre-loved down the through the years, and original owner's names and notations may be visible on the scans.

You'll need Adobe to open the file, however I can print and post for an additional charge - just convo me if needed. Otherwise, the pattern is available in your Etsy account under ‘Downloads’ or can be emailed to you within 24-48 hours of purchase to an email address if requested.
