This is a PDF copy of the 54 page Spadea patterns catalog from the 1950's.
These pattern booklets are a great way to learn about fashion from a certain era, gain inspiration for your latest vintage style sewing project, research a particular pattern, or just enjoy the pages of artistic eye candy!
The art is outstanding. I have copied and blown several up, framed them and hung them in my studio. It's like looking through a 1950's vogue magazine.
This particular booklet features over 100 gorgeous black and white fashion illustrations of patterns being offered for mail order including gorgeous gowns, coats, suits and day dresses by some of the 1950's most fabulous fashion designers.
The featured designers include the following:
Ceil Chapman Claire McCardell Monte Sano
Anne Fogarty Philip Mangone Herbert Sondheim
Robert Knox Karen Stark Toni Owen
Vera Maxwell Harvey Berin Mollie Parnis
Joset Walker Jo Copeland Tina Lesser
And half a dozen others.
