I only have four of these which I bought some time ago when I was considerably slimmer.

Would £2.50 each be too much + p&p?  If you want more than one, I'm happy to adjust the postage.

Hi Jessie

I'm interested in 513.

I am assuming that it's an "old" size 14, which would be a 16 in moder sizes, but so long as I know any requires changes could be made.    IIRC Sizes changed in the late 1960s.

Brenda, there is no year printed on the pattern, but the sizes for a 14 are Bust 36", Waist 28", Hips 40" - oh I remember those days!

That sounds reasonavbly OK, I'll just be careful to check before cutting.

I too remembers slimmer days :\

The pattern has just arrived.  Thank you.  0_0

It's a long time since I've sewed with one of those patterns with no printed marks, just punched holes and notches.  I do like the idea of small holes for the darts though - I always tailor-tack dart markings and it's often a pig to get the tissue off without tearing it so looking forward to using this one.

I found a length of charcoal grey "mixed fibres"  :fabric: with a fine white check running through it.  It has been in the stash for so long that I can't remember buying it and I have absolutely no idea what it's made from, but it's been in the washing machine this morning and is now pegged out to dry and is earmarked for use with this pattern.
