As mentioned in my previous post about my new-found allergies, I’ve got to do a big clean out! I’ve been listing some things in my Etsy store, including patterns and books, but today I added some pretty awesome things from my vintage dressmaking stash that some blog readers might be interested in
A really cool 1938 McCall Needlework Counter Catalog. These are hard to come by, and it’s got such pretty pictures!
A neat set of original lessons, the book that goes with the lessons, and the envelope they’re all stored in from the 1950s from Singer. Fun to see the original samples the owner made, and it’s great to compare with the book’s instructions if you’re learning to sew.
There’s a few more fun vintage dressmaking odds and ends up in my shop now, too. Don’t forget there’s the coupon for 20% off everything in my Etsy store through the end of November with code FALLSEWING2012
