Overview

Patterns used in such wide-ranging items as feedsacks, grain bags from the 1880s, dresses, decorative fabrics, and sewing goods are classified by motifs such as flowers, dots, stripes, fruits, ribbons, animals, and more. The colors and drawings on the patterns—kids with vulnerable smiles on the faces, peaceful couples on farms, jumping bambis—must remind people of the good old days. Each page presents one to six fabrics so readers can enjoy the detail of each pattern. Since it has been getting difficult for fabric collectors to find old patterns in good condition, this book is a precious resource for fabric collectors. This is a perfect gift for sewing and craft enthusiasts as well as all fashion lovers.
