Externally there are some minor signs of wear as you would expect from a retail environment. The edge of the tabs for the card sections dividers show some signs of wear however internally the pages are in very good condition as shown by the sample photos above with very minor imperfections on the odd page. Each Vogue retail counter pattern book has a stitched bound spine. There is no foxing or discolouration but this item was stored in an attic and has a very minor musty smell which may well go now they are in my dry warm house

If this is not quite for you or you would like to see other pattern books, sewing patterns or clothing I stock click below and visit my Etsy shop


These books are very heavy between 4 - 4.5 kg so sorry about the shipping cost. Due to the value of this pattern book it will be sent tracked and signed for. I ship worldwide on most items and am happy to send specific quotes for multiple purchases particularly for international shipping which is unfortunately more expensive than I would like so apologies in advance.

If you have any questions please feel free to drop me a line happy to help

Many Thanks Caroline
