Make Do and Mend 

Look what I found in my local charity shop  

Although I haven’t read all of it just yet, I have looked at the sewing bits and think it’s fairly interesting on how things have changed and how things were made and fixed back in the day.

 

All I can say is thank goodness for the sewing machine button hole function.

Just imagine having to sew button holes by hand 😐 I think I would of had a full on melt down

  

I love the N.B. Tip

It says make horizontal buttonholes for coats, jackets and all fitted garments, for looser things like shirts and blouses, the buttonholes should be vertical. Who knew ????

Thank you 🌸🌸

  1. I love finding old manuals like this! Once my mom sent me a pamphlet that read, “Make sure you clean your house before starting any sewing project. You can’t make a quality garment with a messy home!” So hilarious!
