vintage advice, still relevant

A good friend forwarded this snippet from a Singer sewing manual on to me and I’ve been shocked ever since- that’s the ritual I follow everyday– I never sew without my French chalk by my side… and lots of makeup. Seriously though, it’s why we watch Mad Men, (well, one of the reasons- after the Don Draper reason…), those ladies had so much style and class and never left the house without looking fantastic (apparently same goes for inside the house too).

I’m enjoying the artwork on this leaflet and trying to guess the contents based on the 1949 advice above.

And finally something bit more familiar. In 2012, it’s hard not to overdo it.

By the way, it’s been like 8 days since I’ve bought fabric… so there.
