This is a March, 1920, newspaper tabloid insert filled with the latest fashions for ladies and girls (for patterns that would become available in April 1920). This is right before the dawn of the “flapper” era with its shorter skirts and bobbed hairstyles.
This 100-page catalog eBook is chock-full of goodies from 1938, including ladies’ dresses, outerwear, undergarments, men’s and children’s clothing, gloves, hats, shoes, children’s toys, numerous items for the home, and much more!
This fantastic 1938 eBook contains hundreds of illustrated steps to help you become a proficient seamstress. Included are directions for altering patterns, making changes to the fit of a garment, matching plaids and prints, pleating, and much, much more.
This is a marvelous 116-page catalog from a 1943 mail-order company. Over half the pages are in full color and include clothing for men, women, and children, shoes, hats, and a few household items as well.
This is the perfect companion to the women’s pattern above and includes options for short sleeves, long sleeves, and undersleeves. There’s also an appendix that gives directions for making a “drawstring” look dress. Now available with sizes 12 and 14!
I created this pattern to work within several different eras and be versatile enough for play and dress-up! Pinafores are perfect over Regency and Romantic Era dresses, and pantaloons make it easy to run and play even in girly clothes.
