Vintage vogue 1950s sewing pattern 8553 drop waist dress big bow 32 bust unused
Vintage 1950s Vogue sewing pattern 8553. Size 14, which is a 32 inch bust. Lovely fitted, drop waist dress with full skirt of unpressed pleats at side-fronts and side backs. Choice of sleeveless or shaped cap sleeves. Optional glamorous wide bow! I could find no evidence the tissues have been used. There are no pinholes, and all are neatly if not oddly folded (the small facing pieces in particular are folded into many smaller almost origami like folds- be careful unfolding them!) I have counted the pieces and checked for completeness. The tissues are sturdy, but delicately thin (typical for this era). They are unprinted, and marked with perforations for each piece name. The envelope and instructions are another matter. The acid in the paper has made both very brittle. The envelope is worn and torn at the edges. It has been taped. More importantly, the instructions are very fragile and do have holes at several folds. They are discolored (darkened) but still readable. See photos- the holes do not seem to have caused any significant information to be missing from the instructions. You may want to photocopy them first thing. See photos for details, suggested fabrics and notions. I always ship with cardboard so your pattern is protected. This vintage collectible will also be wrapped in plastic. Overestimated postage will be refunded. I never overcharge on shipping. 10 percent off 3 patterns. 20 percent off 5 patterns. You can either request an updated total before paying, or I will refund the difference after payment, including for combined shipping.
