Chanel-style 60s suit Vogue 6346, unprinted pattern from 1964, bust 34 inches.
This pattern envelope has paper "foxing". For those unfamiliar with the term, here's a short description from Wikipedia:
"Foxing is an age-related process of deterioration that causes spots and browning on old paper documents such as books, postage stamps and certificates. The name may derive from the fox-like reddish-brown color of the stains, or the rust chemical ferric oxide which may be involved. Paper so affected is said to be "foxed".
Although unsightly and a negative factor in the value of the paper item for collectors, foxing does not affect the actual integrity of the paper."
Some brands of vintage patterns seem to suffer from foxing more than others (probably something to do with any chemicals in the paper). #voguepatterns #vintagevogue #sixtiesfashion #chanelstyle #vintagesewingpatterns #60svogue #skirtsuit #secretarylook #foxing #paperfoxing
