I bought this 1934 copy of Home Journal about 20 years ago. Included in it is this 1930s suit pattern – complete with blouse.
I’ve been recovering from an evil chest infection, so apologies if I haven’t been round to your blog recently. To be honest, I’ve done hardly anything but I am catching up now.
All the sewing I’ve done recently has been for other people – presents, so secret and I might be about to start up a little business as I’ve had a few requests from other people.
In the absence of much sewing, I thought it might be interesting to look at some 1930s patterns and magazines. Just click on the images to get a bigger view. Hope you enjoy them.
Pattern instruction page. The pattern is on thin brown paper – a bit stronger than tissue paper and looks unused. I’d love to make it, but I never wear suits so it would just sit in the wardrobe if I did.
This is a 1933 Vogue pattern that I’ve actually made and worn. I will definitely make it again some time.
Fabulous fashion ad for 1934. I fancy the “are you coming?” coat – second from the left on the top row.
