It arrived to day....and I am thrilled with my purchase. First, it comes with 15 digital patterns on disc and it is such a comprehensive book of vintage style (from the 1920s to the 1970s) that I think it will be a bestseller.
|The Vintage Pattern Selector by Jo Barnsfield. $28.50 in Canada but it sells for $17.87 on amazon.ca|
|Dresses, Blouses, Skirts, Pants and Shorts, Suits and Coats, Lingerie and Headware and Gloves have their own chapters.|
|This is a picture of the pattern layout for the 1920s dress. Sizes range from a 36 inch bust to 42 inch.|
There are two additional chapters on construction and sewing techniques. Wow! Sometimes I order duds from amazon but not this time. I love this book and will use the patterns again and again. I think it's a great reference on fashions throughout the decades and I love the 15 patterns included - on disc no less!
So, I'll be reading and printing pattern pieces for the next few days.....
