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 re-sealable envelope for easy storage. If you choose to purchase the original pattern, you receive a piece of history which may include age related wear and tear.
