Vintage Sewing Lessons

1940s Video Lesson

* See bottom of page for more about the 1948 Sewings Lesson Video

Amazing how different things are today, since these vintage sewing lessons videos were made, yet most of the info in the video is still useful.

This is sooo retro. A sewing lesson from 1948. It's all about how some girls have that "know how look". Also a sewing lesson, and critiques on proper etiquette.

The acting between the couple, while discussing the sewing and fashion tips from Simplicity is very entertaining.

My favorite part is when the Simplicity pattern is enlarged to a real sized woman and attatched to a room divider screen. Several girls walk out on each side of the screen, each wearing a different version of the pattern that hangs.
