Last week I shared with you some pages from a 1958 Simplicity Sewing Book and as I mentioned in that post, I found the Simplicity book with another vintage sewing book. A 1964 Vogue Sewing Book! It too is filled with some wonderful sewing tips and techniques.
“Vogue has always known. Known how deep was your need to sew the kind of clothes in which you could walk tall and proud.”
There are fabulous illustrations (typical of vintage Vogue publications) throughout.
It wouldn’t be a sewing book without helpful pages on sewing details.
Included are profiles of the famous couturiers who created Vogue designs, including Emilio Pucci, Guy Laroche, Pierre Balmain and Jacques Heim…
… and their haute couture techniques!
And last but not least, near the end of the book is a fabric dictionary. Very handy for identifying vintage fabrics!
Do you have any vintage sewing books? I think they’re such a valuable resource. Don’t you?
