Couldn’t help it.  Tried to resist for the longest time, then reeeally started wavering Monday.  Got pushed over the edge reading this week’s posts over at Debi’s Happy Sewing Place.  Look at her outfits from all eras – beautiful!

Will soon be the proud owner, and serious student, of the 1930, 1940, and 1954 editions of the Simplicity Sewing Book.  Now to look for the Singer book Debi writes about…

Keep remembering all those Singer attachments from me mum’s black Singer machine that fascinated me, back in the mists of time when I was learning to sew.  Mum never had time to show me how to use them, but mentioned what they did, as I recall.  Which is how I’ve known some of the terms forever.

Guess it’s about time to satisfy curiosity!
