Book Review: The Complete Family Sewing Book


Recently, I rediscovered this book that my step mom had bought for me from a secondhand store. From the looks of the cover, it is an amazing book, but let me tell you, the inside gets even better! (P.S try not to notice the fly-away hair I have going on, thanks.)
The Complete Family Sewing Book was written by Cathi Hunt and was published in 1971. It is basically full of everything you need to know about style (Back then) and sewing! Now, without further ado, here is a sneak peek for everyone!


I want to make all of these dresses!


What's not to love about a girl with a spool of thread as a body and a thimble as a hat?

Look at this suave gentleman. I love a man with a mustache.

I would wear this adorable children's dress myself! I love the peter pan collar!


I love this lady, she has a papasan chair like me! And her kitty is helping, except not really.

How cute! Gotta love thrift store finds! I could use something like this, I just set up my sewing machine and started teaching myself to sew though so I think I'll stick to throw pillows for now..
