I am so excited! The book I ordered came today!
This book was published in 1949 and is just full of wonderful lessons and ideas.
When I was a little girl my mother made me a pinafore and so many other wonderful outfits. It seemed to me that she was always at her sewing machine making me a new outfit and a dress for my little sister. One year we had matching dresses for Easter.
My granddaughter Mandy was given a copy from a friend who found it in a thrift shop. She sews and was so pleased. When I saw it I knew I had to find one too. Where in the world would I find one? I did, on Amazon! I'm so excited. If you love to sew, you will just love this book. Page after page of wonderful illustrations and photographs of the time, even a lesson on making slip covers and draperies!!Talk about vintage!!
I'm back home after teaching a workshop and next week I start sewing!
