vintage clothing for today's fashionable women
How about a few sewing lessons for your stocking? This Singer Sewing Skills book was published in 1954 and is available from VFG member Anna Newman at Booty Vintage on Etsy.
In addition to the conventional "how to use your machine" book, this set also includes (now vintage) fabric, trims, and other materials to practice a progressive set of machine use skills. Each lesson's materials are in a little separate envelope.
