A surprise gift
Edited to add some clarification to the illustrations I showed.
A few weeks ago we visited my mother in law, and as always we left behind some things. Yesterday we received a package with our forgotten things and a few surprises. I am thrilled to have received her sewing book "Sewing made easy" by Mary Lynch with a copyright date of 1952.
I love the introduction "This is a book for the modern woman,..." And the illustrations! There is a note thanking Simplicity for the use of their patterns.
Illustrating how not to elongate your figure more if you are tall
I started to sew on my MIL's Singer(1950's vintage). When I moved to my present home I needed curtains and she offered me her machine since it had been many years since she had used it. I had it cleaned and fixed and it served me quite a few years until I got my Bernina.
Illustrating how "if you have an average figure" to "keep proportions according to your figure"
I am thrilled with this new addition to my sewing library!
Thank you all for the wonderful comments you left on my orange dress post. You are the best!!
