How’s your summer sewing going? Or summer shopping? I still need a few pairs of shorts and I am in love with the cut of the yellow ones above, combined with the cute tropical tie top (kind of looks like the top from the Sunkissed Sweetheart pattern…. hmm… might have to make myself up another one!). I also love the stripes! The images above are from the same catalog I shared swimsuit scans of in an earlier post, from 1946. Notice that one of the gals above is wearing a T shirt, as described in “M”!
I just listed a new E-Book on my website– a compilation of five different sewing leaflets given out during WWII to Make Do and Mend. Good way to rescue some clothing that you otherwise might not be wearing, and some good practical advice on sewing and mending.
Hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
