Today I’ve spent an hour or 2 rummaging through a friend of a friend’s Mum’s stash. We came across this book which really made us chuckle:
The book was published in 1967 and there were other books in the series.
Two extracts caught my eye.
The first was instructions on how to change the elastic in your knickers!! Check out the paragraph underneath too…telling you not to tie knots in the shoulder straps of your slip as it may chafe your armpits!!
The next I thought might be a handy tip for Amanda over at Sew Deputy. She reckons she’s a wonky sewer, but has made the best trenchcoat you’ll have ever seen. So Amanda, be sure to have a good read of this next picture and how to rectify those crooked seams!
Can you imagine what people will be thinking in 40 or so years when they’re reading our blogs!! It’s amazing to think our blogs are keeping such a great record of how things are done now.
Wouldn’t it be fab if we could read them going back in time?
I wonder what they’d say?
