1928 Vintage Sewing Instruction Book

 I found this in a bookshop in Donnybrook and instantly loved the cover and some of the illustrations and at $4 I thought I might just learn something.

This is so funny...what is a prominent tummy exactly? Are they meaning pregnant or just, well, large? 
This is the late 20's which had some fabulous fashion.
It sounds very proper whatever they mean. 
I am sure there will be other insteresting finds in this book


  1. How lovely! Prominent Abdomen sounds so funny (but I definitely have one of those!). Should be a good read...

  2. What a fascinating find! Don't you just love how properly they used to word things decades ago?
