Condition of the Pattern and Sleeve: One thing you'll notice on these older patterns....Instruction sheets were not provided. Cutout directions along with instructions and material required are all printed on the sleeve. Pattern tissue is in very good condition. It's browning with age - afterall it is a 100 year old pattern. Sleeve has a few tears but the instructions are clear and readable.
