Originally published in 1945, this rare sewing book is filled with instructions and illustrations for sewing (crocheting and knitting) fashion accessories. In a 1940s culture of make do and mend, items like those shown in this book were used to inexpensively extend a woman's wardrobe -- important during war time. This book will teach you how to make those creative items worn by our clever foremothers including 12 hats, 6 purses, 4 wraps, a vest, 6 belts (including a purse belt), 3 skirts and 3 peplums -- all included with simple, easy-to-follow directions.

Most items are sewn, but a few are knit or crocheted or contain knit/crochet trims that can be changed-out with ribbon or other embellishments.
