    Of course I keep adding to that list - lots of Mary Brooks Picken fashion/sewing course booklets from 1920s are now on plus an almost complete course (17 issues) of sewing from American System of Dressmaking. These booklets teach much more than just clothing construction.
    And today I put on my group of Vintage Fashion Magazine all issues of 1990 - the first year it was published. I'm pretty sure lots of our VFG members are in there!!

    I remember being so excited when this magazine came out - it is beautiful and very resourceful. Sadly, it didn't last.
    It's in the Etsy shop now - link below

    Barbara, those are GREAT magazines and books! I'm so tempted by those Sears Catalogs--such a great reminder of high school/college days! Thanks for posting this.
