We have 5 of these pattern booklets, all from 1957-1960. This is the thickest (it's a "double issue"), with the most illustrations. If you're interested in any of the others, please contact us. We're happy to offer a discount on two or more.
Labels: Spadea Fashions, Inc. - Patterns by World Famous Designers - Book 12-13X - (c) 1958
Condition: the original owner clearly had plans to order several patterns, as several pages had paper clips and folds at the top corner. We've removed as many paper clips as we could, but the marks, folds, or tears remain. None affects the images, only the blank upper corner of the page. The first third or so of the booklet is folded at the lower outer edge. The vast majority of the pages are in beautiful condition.
Dimensions: 13.5" high x 5" wide x .25" thick
