Thrift Store Find: 1947 Singer Dressmaker Guide

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

I found the coolest thing I’ve ever spent $.99 on yesterday at Savers – a Singer Dressmaker Guide dated 1942!

The sewing tips inside are timeless, of course, but the illustrations are particularly charming.

(Note the original $.25 price tag – holy inflation, Batman!)

Time to bust out Betty the Dressform and do some sewing!
