Here is a short educational film sponsored by the Simplicity Pattern Company. I adore these vintage sewing films, they so clearly demonstrate the social norms of a certain time in history. This one is from 1948 Do Home Economics classes exist any more? I know many schools eliminated it with budget cuts. I believe it is a huge loss. What are your thoughts?

In the off chance that you haven't heard of the Center for Pattern Design, please follow the link and check them out. They are doing great work to preserve the skills of pattern making and draping and have many books and workshops on the subject. They are worth a go see! I received their newsletter today which included a link to this video. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Mary Martin 1953
