Product Information

Originally published in 1943, this WWII wartime booklet contains a number of sewing projects for clothing conservation.

You are the thrifty housewives who recognize the warmth and the comfort still to be found in the outmoded and outgrown clothes lying dormant in your wardrobes, who snip and stitch and seam to create sturdy snow suits of old summer coats... who recut a sweater as a warm and wooly cardigan... who revamp a plaid skirt as a happy school jumper.

Many of you are already playing an important part in clothing conservation. To aid you further, this sewing guide has been planned -- to show you tested ways of bringing new life to outmoded clothes. The material has been selected after many experiments in remaking. The "cast-off's" illustrated are to be found, in most cases, right in your own clothes cupboard.
