It's not all pony rides and penny whistles over here, occcasionally I make something really utilitarian like sturdy bags for groceries or a vest with pockets, many pockets. The BF works at the International Theme Park Company and he wanted a not so fancy vest with pockets for pencils and styrene bits and straight edges. Also probably bits of string, marbles and a frog.
To the book case!
I've looked at flat felled seems all my life on every pair of jeans I've ever owned but never actually made them, so I got out the old Singer Sewing Book, first edition was 1949 mine is from 1953.
With this 
"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." 

I couldn't have said it better.
Is that Joan Crawford? LOL, Mommy Dearest!


He patterned and cut, I sewed. Team work.
Not fancy, but it does have pockets. Success! When you see these old sewing books grab them, I have a few and they are invaluable, well worth the 5 bucks.

Delight always in appropriate fabrics, my friends.

Ever Your Thimble Servant,
Miss Brilliantine
