Sewing - Some 1950's Belts to Make


From Sewing Made Easy by Mary Lynch and Dorothy Sara, first published in 1950. Two pages of ideas on my Flickr account -- Mary and Dorothy's instructions assume you already know how to sew.

(There is a used book store three blocks from my office; I did some serious damage to my wallet last Friday. One of my prizes is a late 20's sewing book with some amazing collars to be made with bias tape. That's for next week).

* sigh * These pretty old 50s belts always assume one has the same waist size every day.

I love bias tape collars! Can't wait to see the instructions.

Shay thanks for this post, I'm actually making a dress and was looking for a belt pattern to accessorize.

Can't wait to see the finished product, Lucia.
