£9.99

Product description

One of a series of books by Mary Brooks Picken (August 6, 1886 – March 8, 1981), an American author of 96 books on needlework, sewing, and textile arts. Many of the techniques explained here are as valid today as when the book was published in 1927. It describes the special factors to take into account, according to the customs of the time, when making maternity garments. It also includes information about delightful vintage baby clothes and crib dressing.
The card cover is a little discoloured but otherwise sound. The staples are rusted but the book is intact except. The pages are lightly yellowed but otherwise in very good condition for the age of the book.
Copyright date 1927.
