Exactly what I was looking for. I had this pattern many years ago, glad I found it. Came fast and in very good condition. Thank you.

I love the patterns in the booklet and just what I was expecting. I am so glad some of these older patterns are still available.

The Story of the Vintage Fashion Library
Owner, Creator, Curator
Wife, Mom, Grandma, Nurse, RA Warrior, lymphoma survivor, Cavachon mommy, and lover of all things vintage. I love Victorian and Edwardian eras, with a soft spot for the 1950s and 1960s. I love fashion history! Sewing patterns are my jam!

Frequently asked questions
Do you ship internationally?
Yes! We ship worldwide. Please email us if you have questions about postage.
Do you offer refunds?
We do not offer refunds.
Can you mark an international package as a gift, or alter the value of the contents?
No. This is illegal. Please don't ask. We can't risk our business for a lie.
Custom and personalized orders
Yes. If combined shipping does not appear in your cart, please contact us. We don't like it when the calculator overcharges!
Custom and personalized orders
Our reproduction patterns have been carefully traced onto a stock paper, which is heavier than the original tissue paper. It is durable and easy to use, and all of the pattern's original markings are there. Original instructions are also included, but keep in mind that the older the pattern, the more sparce the instructions were. Repro patterns are also heavier than the original, so shipping is a bit higher. Please email us if you have questions.
Are you a smoke free, pet free business?
We are smoke free. We do have dogs, but they do not come in contact with our stock. That being said, vintage items have had a previous life, and sometimes odors can be emitted after something is combined in an envelope, and dog allergens may be present even though our pets aren't near the stock. We've never had a complaint in over 20 years of business, however, so hopefully there are no issues.
Aren't you violating copyrights?
All of our e-books and reproduction patterns have been carefully researched to ensure that no copyright violation has taken place. Please do not buy from sellers who violate copyrights -- and if a pattern is post-1961, it's most likely still in copyright! We strive very hard to do honest business and protect the original owner's intellectual property.
I live in rain forest/desert/mountains/tropics/across the world from you. How will you protect my purchase?
Patterns are packaged first in an archival plastic envelope, to protect the paper product from rain and moisture. Then we add a cardboard backing board, to keep the parcel from bending. We then place it into a large mailing envelope and tape it shut, to keep the edges from being caught in a machine at the post office.
Some larger packages, especially books, will be mailed in a Tyvek envelope.
Though we rarely have had any packages arrived damaged, we have seen a couple over the years that arrived (or not) damaged, or with tire tracks on them. In these cases, the pattern was fine! We can't take responsibility for the crazy things the post office may do to your package, but please be assured that this is a very rare occurrence.
