Sewing Advice Circa 1949

Sewing Advice Circa 1949 4K

Featuring DaD Virtual Living

Ok ladies and gentlemen….I don’t even know what to say about this “advice” from a Singer sewing manual from 1949.  I’m still debating if it’s actually real….and unfortunately I think it is, though I suppose this was the norm back in 1949.  All I have to say about this, to quote the old Virginia Slims cigarette ad is “you’ve come a long way, baby”!

Singer Sewing Manual – Circa 1949

Advice on how to sew properly…

Prepare yourself mentally for sewing.
Think about what you are going to do.
Never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically.
Good results are difficult when indifference dominates.
Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade.

When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first
so that your mind is free to enjoy your sewing.
When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible.
Put on a clean dress.
Keep a little bag of French chalk near your sewing machine
to dust your fingers at intervals.
Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick on.
If you are constantly fearful that a visitor might drop in or
that your husband will come home, and you will not look
neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing.

Today I am featuring a brand new release from DaD Virtual Living.  This is the Farmhouse Cozy Set.  There is a fatpack available that includes a bonus item and you can also purchase pieces individually.  The Farmhouse Cozy Set and pieces are available now at Uber.
