Learn to sew with 1948 style

I love these old videos!! They make life look so easy and simple. They are also very useful, as the craft of sewing has changed very little over the decades. This two-part video briefly touches on how to choose styles for your figure and explains how to read your pattern, cut it out and sew it up. Learn some basic couture techniques that will improve your quality of sewing. These used to be common place, but are now rarely done. Part two includes how to sew in a sleeve, a tiny bit of fitting, and even a fashion show!







My favorite quote is at the end. Remember that you become a "fashion show every day when you step out in clothes you've made for yourself!"

Love these videos. The principles "seem": outdated - but everything is right on. Do you have any more?
Thanks, Laura.

At this moment, no. You might be interested in some of the vintage fashion videos I've posted on Facebook.
