For anyone reading here looking to learn vintage sewing techniques for FREE this online printable course is just the thing.
Many of the techniques in this 56 chapter course manual can be 'converted' to modern sewing machine use in addition to the hand stitchery which includes a full repertoire worthy of a respectable tailor. Who would have thought most of the techniques from this 'relic' of 1926 would be just as good today as the day it was released? I'd say Great Grandma learned to be a tailor when she took sewing class!
The best part to me is chapter 24: how to make your own dress form using gummed paper and a shirt replete with black and white photos!
Enjoy and I hope it helps anyone out there looking to learn about 'old tyme sewing, culture and obscure or somewhat forgotten techniques and materials.
