1930's/40's style

I do like looking at the old newsreels some of the make do and mend ones are great for ideas.
This has an interesting 'waistcoat' element.

FASHION HINTS (aka PATCHWORK & HATS) (issue title - S.O.S.)

I do wonder where you ordinary woman would just have a hat block hanging around.


Although the 'clothes' they make from a shirt etc. Look nice. But they don't give instructions. :(

And now an appropriate poster so the novice seamstress....
