THE PATTERN ~ THE INSTRUCTIONS ~ THE ENVELOPE
Pattern pieces are counted (if cut) and examined for tears and flaws and completeness. A pattern is considered complete if all pieces and instructions are present. Large tears, alterations, taped pieces or any condition that may make the pattern difficult to work with will be noted in the pattern condition description. If a pattern is missing a piece(s), that/those piece(s) will be identified in the pattern condition description. When a pattern has been cut, the size it has been cut to will be noted if the pattern originally contained multiple sizes. Patterns offered here will be described as complete when all pattern pieces and instructions are present; patterns missing any of these items will state such. (Patterns missing envelopes will state such within the condition of the envelope, listed separately under “Condition”)
