Authentic vintage sewing patterns: This is a fabulous original dress making pattern, not a copy. Because the sewing patterns are vintage and pre owned, we check each vintage sewing pattern for completeness, for the pattern pieces and the instruction sheet. Please keep in mind these are vintage patterns that may show their age not perfect in appearance but still very usable. In many cases the vintage patterns have never been used and are uncut and factory folded.
