This video by Simplicity is a wonderful (and slightly hilarious) look at sewing in the 1940′s. It’s worth watching all the way through! I feel so lazy when I sew after watching this video! Does anyone actually do a tissue fit and then baste your entire garment before sewing it? Crazy! I also don’t know what I’d do if I had to iron with a sponge.
Don’t forget those shoulder pads, Ladies
