Mary Frances Sewing Book - Vintage Doll Patterns on CD
Presenting you with a digital reproduction of the vintage 1913 book titled, The Mary Frances Sewing Book - Adventures Among the Thimble People written by Jane Eayre Fryer, delivered to you on a CD-Rom.
This wonderful book teaches seamstresses everything they need to know to make a variety of outfits and accessories. The Fairy Lady, Tommy Pin Cushion, and Sewing Bird are just a few of the "talking" implements that offer Mary Frances advice in charming verse. A cross-stitch sampler is the first project they work on; a complete wardrobe for a 16-inch doll follows. In addition to instructions on page, there are many actual patterns in back---for an "automobile" coat and bonnet, a party dress, a "lady's work bag," even a wedding dress---33 in all.
The Mary Francis Sewing Book is a wonderful instruction book in sewing techniques with patterns for clothes for a 16-inch doll, this book was originally for children.
Adult doll collectors are also using this as a wonderful reference for sewing clothes for dolls such as Schoenhuts, bisques, compositions, and others from the early years of this century.
100+ black and white illustrations.
