Vintage sewing projects book
There's a a public library here in San Diego that has a second-hand bookstore within it. I happened upon it the other day, and got some new magazines for a dime or a quarter (depending on title and date). That's better than thrift store prices! I found a few sewing books too, including this one that is by, apparently, the sewing expert on the Dinah Shore show. Can you imagine that they actually had a job for that? Later she became the fashion director for the Singer Company. The book is filled with lots of projects, and is dated 1974.
A different version of a necktie skirt.
Apron made from a towel. The book has tons of ideas, but I picked out all the apron ones for this post.
