Op Shop Monday - Cute As a Button, and Useful!

























Today's rumage at the op shop yeilded this 70's sewing book all about how to sew for yourself, your family and your home. I love the tips in these 60's and 70's sewing books, everything is made the 'right' way - no overlockers, just beautiful pressed out seems. There was an assumption that everyone was born with the ability to sew and draft, so there are no short cuts or lengthy explinations (which I would like at times)....I am just so in love with the pink and white pants - and the gingham dress just melts my heart!
