DellaJane Patterns: Mail Order

It is very difficult to accurately date mail order patterns! Advertisements were published in multiple magazines for many years. Few are dated. Readable postmarks on the envelope can help date the pattern. Pattern description states whether envelope is included, and usually mentions postmark.

If patterns have been cut, all pieces are present and in good condition unless otherwise noted. Pattern envelopes may have stamped or written marks from stores or previous owners. Pattern envelopes may not be in pristine condition - this is not always noted in pattern description. Photo shown is not always of actual pattern. Only one copy of a pattern is available unless specifically stated otherwise.

Shipping is calculated by the total of your order. Insurance ($50) is included in shipping charges for USPS Priority Mail. For orders where you are charged for Priority Mail Shipping, it may be possible to ship by USPS First Class Parcel. If you prefer the less expensive shipping option, please add a note when you check out. If possible, I will ship at lower rate and refund your excess payment. Orders which are for books only may be shipped Media Rate Mail.

Maximum shipping and handling for 1-8 patterns (USA address) or 1-2 patterns (most countries outside USA) will be $10. Shipping paid over $10 in these cases will be refunded via PayPal when your order is shipped.
