whitestarheart's Shop Policies


Thank you for stopping by my shop. Please take a moment to read some important information:

Pattern envelopes may have ink stamps, stains or writing across them or be cosmetically defaced, damaged in some way or simply be suffering from foxing, long term storage and/or old age!
Pictures and images are an integral part of each listing description.
With ALL pattern descriptions, please refer to individual listing details.

**UNCUT** patterns may be old and the envelope may appear aged and worn, however the pattern pieces will be in factory folds or original printed intact sheets (not cut out and not cut to size).

**UNUSED** patterns will be old and the envelope may appear aged and worn, however the unprinted pre-cut pattern pieces will be free of pin or pen marks.

**CUT** patterns will be checked for completeness before dispatch or upon request.
If the pattern is not as described in the listing, I will contact you via convo or email to offer some options, unfortunately some patterns are not as they appear to be in the envelope.

**CLEARANCE** ITEMS ARE SOLD "AS IS" and will not be checked.

Could you kindly ensure your etsy profile includes a current and monitored email address, in case I need to contact you about your order? Also, please ensure your delivery address details are correct as your item will be shipped to the exact address as it appears on your profile.

Please bear with me while I update all listings to include the back of each pattern envelope with detailed information. If you would like to see this information now or check any other details, I'm happy to do that, just convo me.
