What You Will Receive
If you select a Paper Pattern, you will receive a true to scale reproduction sewing pattern printed on A0 premium paper, along with instructions, and a full-colour front cover. Your pattern will arrive, in a clear resealable envelope for easy storage. If you choose to purchase the original pattern, you receive a piece of history which will include age-related wear and tear.

Sizes
