All about fashion, sewing... and more

I love sewing, I love vintage fashion, so the moment I discovered my first vintage sewing magazines, I was hooked on them. And once I started looking, I found so many great, unusual and original patterns that I knew this went beyond my own collecting and sewing for myself, so I started my shop. I have a special place in my heart for the Swiss pattern company Ringier, whose patterns I find regularly. You'll always find lots of them in my shop. They had everything on offer: kid's clothes, every day clothes, evening gowns... If you want to find out more about them, please check out the page on them on the Vintage Sewing Pattern Wiki, which I created: http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Ringier

I started with opening this shop for my collage art, but found later that my passion for fashion, sewing and other things vintage has taken over, which is why I have separated my vintage wares onto two shops. In my other shop, www.etsy.com/shop/willynillyvintage, you'll find fun vintage fashion, accessories and knick-knacks.
Plus I am also selling vintage fashion and jewelry at the Vintage Fashion Guild Shop, a great vintage selling group on Facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/vfgshop/

I'm also a proud member of The Vintage Fashion Guild:

Shipping

If you buy more than one item, shipping costs may differ depending on weight and size. Possible shipping overages will be refunded when shipping is printed; if shipping should cost more, I will contact you beforehand. If you have any doubts, please ask before buying.

Items ship from Switzerland usually within 3 days of purchase. Shipping is by Swiss Post, the basic rates listed DO NOT INCLUDE insurance or tracking number. Please note that all shipments can still take longer due to COVID-19. Postal services are not always guaranteeing delivery times. It is highly recommended to add the option for insurance & tracking which is offered at check-out.

According to Swiss Post, international shipping can take everything from 3 to around 20 days, but delivery times cannot always be guaranteed.

I take no responsibility for customs fees or taxes that might apply in your country and I will not put a false value on the customs declaration or declare something as a gift when it is not (that would be fraud).
Customs fees are not included except for shipments to EU countries and the UK, where Etsy offers to charge these with the sale (they will show separately on your purchase). In this case, items will be sent showing an IOSS or tax number, showing that customs fees have already been paid with the purchase. HOWEVER, in some EU countries, postal services still charge a processing fee for goods sent from non-EU countries, no matter if customs fees have been prepaid. These cannot be prepaid and it is the buyer's responsibility to pay them.
For all shipments outside the EU and UK, I take no responsibility for customs fees and no such fees are included in your purchase. Shipments may be subject to customs fees depending on the destination country and buyers must pay all such fees.
No refund is given for items returned to seller because the buyer refused to pay customs fees of the destination country.

Additional policies and FAQs

I take care to fully disclose all damage and issues to patterns and other items. The image in the listing is always of the actual pattern, even though I occasionally may have the same pattern listed twice. All my patterns are stored and shipped in a plastic envelope. All my patterns are original, vintage patterns, unless it is an official reproduction and noted as such. I do not sell printed or digital copies of vintage patterns. Therefore, these can be damaged. Also, I do not sell patterns that are so incomplete as that they are not usable anymore.

Not happy with your purchase? I am striving for all my transactions to be worthy of 5 stars. If you feel that there are any issues with your purchase, please do contact me before leaving feedback.
