Embroidery-Tufting on Net, 1925

In the days when a middle-class woman's wardrobe was limited (by time and closet space as well as finances), pretty accessories, easy and inexpensive to make, were called on almost daily to transform a sober work-day woolen dress or suit into something dressier. This article (two pages on my Flickr account and I apologise for the offset but I'm still perfecting my Fotoflexer skills) offers instructions for creating a boudoir cap, waist, and collar from tufting, embroidery with yarn on purchased net. It is from Modern Priscilla, January 1925.
