Pattern is cut and complete. Envelope is aged with tape mends on edges.
Overall the pattern pieces are in good condition and are certainly usable but a portion that was touching the backside of the envelope front has lightly browned as a result of the acidity in the envelope and most likely heat. This is why, when I acquire vintage patterns, I remove the pattern pieces and instructions from the envelope and store them in acid-free backing boards and polypropylene sleeves. The envelopes are placed in front of the backing board. The pattern and instructions are placed in back of the backing board. It won't make the patterns young again but it prevents further deterioration for up to 100 years.
