Vintage items have lived a previous life, thus they may show signs of wear, such as stains, creases, tears, foxing, marks or pinholes. We do our best to describe accurately.

Some patterns may have missing pieces. These are labelled “wounded birds”, and will list the missing pieces. Please read the listing carefully.

Patterns are shipped in plastic bags, with a backing board. This will protect them from the elements (and the post office).

In our continued effort to remain environmentally friendly, your Paypal or credit card receipt will serve as your receipt.

We combine shipping! If the shipping does not look accurate in your shopping cart, please email us!

Please check your address on the invoice before purchasing, as we can only ship to the address Etsy provides us.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:

We love to ship to our international customers, but want you to know a few things. International shipping prices have gone up tremendously over the past couple of years. Please check the shipping carefully before purchasing, and if you have questions, please email us.

Import taxes/VAT are the responsibility of the purchaser. Please do not ask us to alter a customs form, as it is illegal and we can’t risk our business on a lie.

International packages take longer to arrive due to processing them through customs. International delivery times can vary from week to week, so please be patient and check with your post office if your package hasn’t arrived.

4 out of 5 stars

This review isn’t to say ‘don’t buy this’ it’s more to let you know what you’re getting when you buy it. I don’t like leaving reviews that aren’t 5 star, but I feel like this product description was vague enough, to some there wouldn’t be an issue. I wouldn’t call the tracing precise, corners didn’t feel sharp, lines to go on fabric folds aren’t straight. The stock paper feels too heavy to use for pattern pieces that you pin to fabric, so either you need a big enough cutting table to use weights or you need to retrace all of the pieces. I haven’t sewn this one yet so it may come together perfectly fine! It just wasn’t the quality I expected for the price and description. I would have still purchased this if I knew the quality, I just feel like I wouldn’t have been disappointed when I unfolded it.
