Vintage Sewing.

Hello everyone!
As promised, I have taken a few pictures of my lovely vintage sewing book.
It was written in the 1940's, and is very much in the wartime spirit of "Make Do & Mend".

I treasure it, although am unlikely to be making any garments from it!

The cover. Not bad for over 70 years old!

The inside cover.

Giving Bodices a new style! (As you do)!!!

Giving sleeves a new style........

Mending table linen.

And of course, we all have buttons on our undies.....!

I wonder how many of us even wear gloves, let alone mend them!

Well, I hope that gives you a little insight into the fashions & trends of wartime Britain. Hope you enjoyed it.
Thought you might like this cartoon I found. It is SO true!!

Be back soon!
