Flattering Your Figure!

Some sewing tips and procedures are never outdated. I just came across a Simplicity Sewing book copyright 1958. I found it at the local senior center thrift store and paid a whopping 25 cents for it. I’ll be sharing some of the highlights from it since I’m between sewing projects worthy of sharing. I have been very busy with sewing lessons and alterations. It’s not as fun as creative sewing, but the extra money goes into my travel fund so I appreciate the steady work.

How do you know what will look the most flattering on you? Read through this little quiz for a perspective on the most attractive styles for your figure….remember this is from 1958!

    I’ve seen this article before, I think Simplicity must have used it in later sewing books as well. I’m in love with my vintage sewing books, for sure! Although there are some hysterically outdated ‘gems’, most of the technical stuff is actually better explained and more ‘proper’ than many new sewing books I have purchased.

    I agree with you on how clearly and accurately the old sewing books can be. I guess that’s why I’m so excited when I find one.
