Sewing / Fashion Collectible - 1950s sewing patterns catalogue / catalog / book

Weldons / Weldon's Catalogue of Fashions and Home Dressmaking - Sewing Patterns
Spring 1955
Published by The Amalgamated Press Ltd, London, UK
32 pages (including cover) - printed on newsprint-type paper - the cover and central spread are in colour, the remainder in black and white
Dimensions: approx. 8.5" x 11.5"

Showcases an array of 1950s garments - for ladies and girls - undies, spring/summer dresses, holiday wear and smarter day dresses/suits. According to the cover, features 'over 100 designs' in total. There are some great period advertisements too!

** Please note that this catalogue doesn't actually contain any sewing patterns **
It was a showcase catalogue for patterns that had to be purchased via mail order. All the same, it is an invaluable reference tool for the collector of vintage fashion and/or sewing patterns. It is a comparatively large catalogue too (many similar catalogues from this period comprised only 16-20 pages)

Quite a scarce little find!

In good condition on the whole though there are a few flaws. The staples have started to rust a little but are still intact. There are (tea?) stains to several pages (mainly 3 pages of advertisements) - the stains have been wiped but remain visible (though the text is still legible so it isn't too obstrusive). There is also some general creasing/folding of corners etc through handling and some 'tanning'. But it is otherwise good - the pages are complete, the binding is tight and there are no major tears or annotations

Any questions, please feel free to ask
