This video was taken in the late 40s. It does have great tips. I never thought about marking darts that way nor do I base the garmet together before I sew. Those girls look great. On funny side, their bad fashion is actually passable today.

Brilliant. It is amazing how little the basic tools of sewing have changed.

Of course, it could be just that a lot of my tools belonged to my Mum who was born in 1918 and sewed until her death in 1999.

Totally fun ... thanks for posting. Who knew that "getting your colors done" was going on in the 40s. :)
