Welcome to the Vintage Fashion Library!

A true rare find!  This unprinted pattern is unused and in factory folds.  Pattern is for a button front dress with short sleeves that feature turnback cuffs that come to a point.  The neckline is notched in a geometric shape.  Back squared shaped yoke.  Front hip pocket.  Fashion Originator patterns were not made in large quantities, and for a short period of time, so while many people use the word rare way too often, this pattern truly is rare!  Envelope shows some mild wear, with minor tears on the top part of the seam.

Bust 36
Waist 30
Hips 29
Complete with all pieces and instructions.

Vintage items have lived a previous life, thus they may show signs of wear, such as stains, creases, tears, foxing, marks or pinholes. We do our best to describe accurately.

Some patterns may have missing pieces. These are labelled “wounded birds”, and will list the missing pieces. Please read the listing carefully.

Patterns are shipped in plastic bags, with a backing board. This will protect them from the elements (and the post office).

In our continued effort to remain environmentally friendly, your Paypal or credit card receipt will serve as your receipt.

We combine shipping! If the shipping does not look accurate in your shopping cart, please email us!

Please check your address on the invoice before purchasing, as we can only ship to the address Etsy provides us.

Please read the listing carefully prior to purchase. By purchasing, you acknowledge that you have read the entire listing and have asked any questions prior to purchase. We do not accept refunds if for situations where the purchaser did not read the listing. We are here to help and answer questions!


We love to ship to our international customers, but want you to know a few things. International shipping prices have gone up tremendously over the past couple of years. Please check the shipping carefully before purchasing, and if you have questions, please email us.

Import taxes/VAT are the responsibility of the purchaser. Please do not ask us to alter a customs form, as it is illegal and we can’t risk our business on a lie.

International packages take longer to arrive due to processing them through customs. International delivery times can vary from week to week, so please be patient and check with your post office if your package hasn’t arrived.
