***** More information about this pattern *****

Historical Stitches patterns are digital reproductions of original patterns, normally only in one size. The original instructions are included, which are not as comprehensive as modern sewing pattern instructions. I have added helpful hints were possible, and am more than willing to provide tech assistance if you need it. Because of this I would not recommend Historical Stitches patterns for brand new sewers.

Visit here to see my blog post about using this pattern.


The pattern is in a two part Download – an instruction file and a pattern file.
The digital pattern can be printed on either A4 or 8.5″ x 11″ paper.
I would suggest the difficulty rating for this pattern as an Intermediate.

I can also email it to you instead if requested.
