Welcome to the Vintage Fashion Library!
This is an original brochure, NOT a scan.Delineator Magazine from December, 1895, shows fashions of the day and the associated pattern numbers. Tons of articles about fashion and culture of the day, including articles about men's ties and millinery. Dozens of black and white illustrations of patterns available that month.
About 80 pages. In good vintage condition. The covers are missing, but I believe that the inside is complete, with the exception of a few loose pages that appear to be advertisement pages from the back. Binding was originally done with staples, and they are intact, but the top and bottom are looser than the middle when looked at closely.
**Please note that this does not include actual patterns.***
Vintage items have lived a previous life, thus they may show signs of wear, such as stains, creases, tears, foxing, marks or pinholes. We do our best to describe accurately.
Some patterns may have missing pieces. These are labelled “wounded birds”, and will list the missing pieces. Please read the listing carefully.
Patterns are shipped in plastic bags, with a backing board. This will protect them from the elements (and the post office).
In our continued effort to remain environmentally friendly, your Paypal or credit card receipt will serve as your receipt.
We combine shipping! If the shipping does not look accurate in your shopping cart, please email us!
Please check your address on the invoice before purchasing, as we can only ship to the address provided to us at time of purchase.

Please read the listing carefully prior to purchase. By purchasing, you acknowledge that you have read the entire listing and have asked any questions prior to purchase. We do not accept refunds if for situations where the purchaser did not read the listing. We are here to help and answer questions!
We love to ship to our international customers, but want you to know a few things. International shipping prices have gone up tremendously over the past couple of years. Please check the shipping carefully before purchasing, and if you have questions, please email us.
Import taxes/VAT are the responsibility of the purchaser. Please do not ask us to alter a customs form, as it is illegal and we can’t risk our business on a lie.
International packages take longer to arrive due to processing them through customs. International delivery times can vary from week to week, so please be patient and check with your post office if your package hasn’t arrived.
