Includes designs for summer dresses, beach wear , shorts, sun suits (also one swim suit)etc. Also includes a knitting pattern for the striped sweater / jumper featured as well as several interesting period advertisements

** Please note that this catalogue doesn't actually contain any sewing patterns. It was a showcase catalogue for patterns that had to be purchased separately via mail order. All the same, it is an invaluable reference tool for the collector of vintage fashion and/or sewing patterns **

A rare survival!

Please note: in FAIR condition only. There are vertical and horizontal fold lines, as well as a couple of diagonal folds. Some tearing around the staples. Also a small horizontal tear (at the spine), measuring just over 1/2" (approx. 2cm) that affects all pages but just misses the majority of the text/illustrations. General age discolouration but no major stains or annotations
