Thank you for stopping by my shop! It has been my pleasure to sort through old and rare patterns and bring my finds to you.

When I offer used (cut) patterns, they are checked for completeness. If a piece is missing from a cut pattern, the missing piece(s) will be indicated.

Patterns are, in my opinion, in good usable condition but may occasionally have wrinkling and edge-tears. Some patterns may be as old as 90 years so may have wrinkles, writing, tears and be fragile. I do not unfold factory folded patterns because they can not be refolded to their original state.

Pattern envelopes may be tattered, marked and/or show signs of age from use and/or storage.

RESERVED PATTERNS: I will hold items on reserve for 7 days and they need to be purchased and paid for within that time frame. I may extend a reserve time period for you upon request. If you would like to reserve item's for an extended period of time I may require a non-refundable deposit to be determined, as well as time-frame for the reserve.
All patterns are hand checked. Factory folded patterns are not counted so as to preserve their "new" quality...however, I do peek inside to confirm. It is not uncommon for items to show some signs of wear. If a pattern has defects such as tears or holes it will be noted. I use masking tape when repairing patterns as it will not melt with your iron. If I make repairs I let you know.

I use clear tape when repairing the instruction guide. If I make repairs I let you know.

Most older pattern instructions will have some discoloration (tan to light brown) from age.

Please always review measurements for each pattern. There have been many sizing changes over the years. A size 12 from 1950s does not have the same measurements as a modern day pattern size 12.

All patterns are vintage items and sold…AS IS. Although I have a smoke-free home, I have no control over where items have been previously. I attempt to represent my goods as honestly as possible, but I'm not perfect and something may get by. If you have any doubts about an item, EMAIL ME! I want to make sure that you are pleased with your purchase.

Odors and Pets: These patterns come from all across the country and from many different homes. I can not say if they are from a pet free or smoke free home. I will however note if the pattern has a particular strong odor. But what I think may smell fine, may be a smell to your nose. I will try my best, I have on occasion used my air purifier for refreshing "vintage" strong smelling patterns. I have found that almost all odors will dissipate when placed in fresh air or sunshine. If you for some reason have a particularly sensitive nose please contact me prior to your purchase and I will double check the pattern for even the slightest odor.

Additional policies and FAQs
We take great care in representing the quality of the things we sell, including a 3-step verification process. All vintage sewing patterns are checked for usability, counted for completeness of pattern pieces, and lastly to make sure the instructions are included. Each used pattern will include any notes pertaining to the pattern that were found during the inspection. This is an easy way for you to confirm everything is as it should be.
