This book I found at an estate sale amid a bunch of old atlases. As I flipped through the pile, it peeked out from behind one of the dusty old books and I gasped! Honestly, the other people in the room must have thought I was crazy. This book is in excellent condition; only the dust jacket has some wear and tear. You can see in the last photo where the it is ripped. But the inside cover is in almost perfect condition, no fading or stains. The inside has a wealth of information on pretty much any thing you need to know about sewing, including many full color pictures from the 50s!! By Mary Brooks Picken. Copyright 1954. 260 pages.

This 1954 edition is the thoroughly revised and modernized edition of the renowned SINGER SEWING BOOK.

I especially love the dedication in the beginning of the book ~

"This book is dedicated to women and girls--
and especially to teachers of sewing everywhere--
who enjoy the feel of fabric, the beauty of textures,
the precision of stitches, the smoothness of seams,
and who delight always in appropriate fabrics
carefully cut and made up for a happy purpose."
