A bit of 1948 gold!

"Johnny how did you get in here"  

This video from Simplicity in 1948 is full of great one liners and clever rhyming. Johnny's a bit insulting but it's of it's time as they say!  

Love that zippers were once called slide fasteners and that they did a running stitch down the centre front to see if the dress hangs straight! 

They did so many extra details like tacking, stay stitching and basting back then. Details that seem to be lost to the new generation
 of patterns and sewers! 

 I need to make myself a cute wrist pin 
cushion like Betty's!

I just picked up a chalk hem marker at the op shop last week! I can't wait to try it out!
