Tips for Easy Sewing

You never know when you may need some help. I found this at Goodwill last night for .99. As you see the original price was .75. The copyright is 1968. Here's a few of the pages. Lots of tips on how to look slim and tall or short and rounder. Some pages show necklines that flatter your face and some tips on pattern sizing. But different than today.

I'm in awe of anyone that can sew!!
I don't have the patience for it - or the talent!
I can paint the smallest detail, but sewing makes me lose my mind!
This old pattern is great. :)
I really like your blog. I've become a "Follower".
Best,
gabriele

I love these old fashion and beauty how-to books:). Those were the days when women dressed to flatter their best attributes and not buy everything off the rack to look like clones:). xo
