This first beauty is something I've been searching for a while for: a 1920s sewing guide! This edition is actually from 1930, but the book was first printed in 1927. I think that counts.
And get a look at these ladies! Great clothes, yes? The book itself is black and white with sparse illustrations, but there's a little Singer add section in the middle in two colours. I plan to scan more of it as I go through.
I bought this circa 1938 booklet for the cover before I had a chance to flip through it. I was a little sad to find it mostly full of ads for all-bran and ways to stay regular. Was this a major problem in the past? All my vintage magazines seem to be full of similar ads. Still a great cover though; thinking of framing it.
This knitting booklet is part of a lot of four I just scored on eBay (which I was in no way shopping on instead of writing other papers... nope). The other three are women's pattern books, and I have a seperate post planned for them.
