Welcome to Historic Needlecrafts- Patterns from the past brought back to life for modern crafters

From the queen of simple, "no pattern needed" type of patterns, Ruth Wyeth Spears, we have directions to sew two garments from her 1939 No. 4 Sewing Booklet.

1..Panties from 3/4 yard of silk
2..Bed jacket for chilly nights

This PDF provides instructions for sewing these items with guidance to make your own pattern.

Some knowledge of vintage sewing patterns will be helpful.

This item is for the PDF instruction sheet and not the finished article.

Contact me with any questions.

Pattern contains 4 pages.

A Digitally Cleaned and Restored Reprint published in PDF format, 4 pages in total. Delivered via email within 24 to 48 hours of the receipt of your payment if not sooner!

What is PDF format? It is the format used by Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you don't have the correct software, you can get it from www.adobe.com. The beautiful thing about PDF files is that they are formatted and paginated which means that they are very easy to read (when compared with plain text files) and they are ready to print!
