All sizes are included in one pattern. All patterns are complete with the pattern sheet and the instructions. They are used but in good condition.
The Stretch and Sew sewing patterns and technique were developed and designed by Ann Person back in the late 1960’s to help defray costs for the consumer on stretch type garments. Ann opened stores and hired instructors to give classes on how to “stretch and sew”. I myself took classes back in the middle 1970’s. I believe it was continued into the early 1980’s. I don’t know if any still exist.
These patterns are easy to use. You don’t actually cut the pattern. You trace it to lightweight interface or what was or is called Do-Sew or lightweight tracing paper, then you use that as your pattern.
