Shipping cost for the total order will be displayed during the checkout process.

What if I want to return a purchase?
I have made every effort to insure that all pattern pieces are included in the pattern envelope. If you receive a pattern with missing piece(s), please contact me immediately and return the pattern. You may have a refund of the purchase price or choose a replacement pattern.
Please note that even uncut "new" patterns can have extensive envelope wear, especially if they are vintage.
Some patterns have envelopes in poor, tattered or torn condition. This will either be apparent in the image or noted in the description. Please note the envelope condition BEFORE purchasing. If the pattern and instructions are in good condition and all pattern pieces are present, a refund or exchange will NOT be allowed for a damaged envelope.
If a multi-size pattern has been cut, I have noted the cut size. Please be sure the pattern is the size you need BEFORE purchasing. Refunds or exchanges will NOT be allowed if you purchase the wrong size.
How do I know if a pattern has been cut and if so to what size?
Uncut, factory folded patterns are listed as "New" and cut patterns as "Used".
There are some patterns noted as "cut" when the pieces have been individually cut from the factory folded sheet, but not cut to any size.
If a multi-size pattern has been cut, the listing will indicate that the pattern has been cut for a certain size. The cut size and all sizes lower than that size are available on the cut pattern.
Some patterns have multiple garments but only one garment pattern has been cut. These will be listed as "partially cut" and will note the size cut.
How do I pay for my purchase?
I accept PaPay and Google Checkout payments.
Please contact me if you wish to pay with a Postal or Bank Money Order, Personal Checks and Cashier's Check. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ITEM WILL NOT BE HELD UNLESS YOU GIVE ME A MONEY ORDER OR CHECK NUMBER PRIOR TO MAILING PAYMENT.
How are fabrics and notions priced?
Fabrics are priced by the piece unless otherwise stated in the description. If the quantity for fabric shows more than "1", please check the description for "priced per yard". If not noted, then the fabric is sold as a piece.
Notions are sold per piece unless the description states "sold as a group of X" or "sold by the yard".
Please check the description before purchasing as refunds will not be give for misunderstood quantities.
