Welcome to the Vintage Fashion Library!
This is an original brochure, NOT a scan. February 1887 issue of Peterson's Magazine, featuring pictures of fashions of the day, artwork in black and white, and fiction writing. There are some crochet patterns included as well.
About 50 pages. I believe this to be fairly complete, though the covers are missing, and there is no table of contents to ensure this. Binding was originally done with two staples and although the binding is tight, pages at the back are beginning to come loose of the staples. One page is missing, and with much handling, more will follow, I'm sure. There is some minor foxing, but nothing that will impair your enjoyment of this wonderful piece of history.
Shipped to you in an archival plastic bag, with a backing protector to keep it safe.
**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 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.
