Authentic vintage sewing patterns: This is a fabulous original dress making pattern, not a copy. Because the patterns are vintage and preowned, we check each vintage sewing pattern for completeness, for the pattern pieces and the instruction sheet. In many cases the vintage patterns have never been used and are uncut and factory folded.
