This is an original brochure, NOT a scan. Fashions to Sew, a mail order sewing pattern magazine that was published to show the patterns of the day. Published by Pattern Department, which sold patterns by mail order, advertising in newspapers and magazines. This issue is Fall and Winter 1967, and shows dozens of fashions of the day in black and white illustrations and photos. Included is a free pattern for a contour belt, which is printed in the center fold. Patterns for women's fashions, including dresses, pants, skirt and aprons. Also included is two pages of children's patterns.
This is a great reference of styles of the day, some showing the wild Pucc-like prints so popular at the time.
34 pages,not including covers. There is some curling of page edges and corners, and two pages have some orange crayon marks where a toddler must've had some fun. There is a mailing coupon cut out from the back cover.
**Please note that this does not include actual patterns.***
Vintage items have lived a previous life, thus they may show signs of wear, such as stains, creases, tears, foxing, marks or pinholes. We do our best to describe accurately.
Some patterns may have missing pieces. These are labelled “wounded birds”, and will list the missing pieces. Please read the listing carefully.
Patterns are shipped in plastic bags, with a backing board. This will protect them from the elements (and the post office).
