A Sewing Treasure
Since it's Labor Day, and our weather is definitely turning toward fall, I thought I'd share a couple of photos of a treasured piece of ephemera. Look at that date: Fall & Winter, 1882-'83.
This pattern book is large: It nearly fills the fold-out leaf of my vintage treadle sewing machine.
After looking at the complex designs included in this antique edition, you won't hear me complain about my own detailed patterns for the Thread West handbag line!
Enjoy the rest of your holiday, and these last bits of summer....
