An Awful Book

Delightful bit of writing on this dressmaking book of Deb's:

Charming and inviting. From 1965, dontcha know? 3 and 6, and worth every penny.

Inside there's a useful glossary, which reveals to me an entirely new meaning for the verb "baste", and has some nice things to say out loud, like "blind hem," "notches," and "catch stitch." Go on, say them now. Now! Feels GREAT doesn't it?

Also: "Bodge". There's one I haven't heard in a while.

It was my grandmas - she would probably have been quite amused by this post, x
