Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the Woman's Institute Corsets and Close-Fitting Garments Instruction Guide! Originally published during the late Edwardian to early Flapper Eras in 1921! What could be more fun for those who love recreating vintage undergarments than this guide from one of the best sewing Institutes of the early 1900's This publisher's books were as much clamored for then as they are now! A great find for those who love the Edwardian and Flapper era women's under garments. (Original is not for sale)

Our new line of Spiral Bound Book Republications™ oh-so-conveniently lie flat while in use!

This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern's instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!

An excerpt:

''Corsets have much to do with the appearance of the women who wear them and also with their comfort and discomfort and, consequently, their disposition, for it can be truly said that corsets that fit properly are the next thing to a blessing, whereas ill-fitting corsets can provide as much food for ill temper as can any other thing. Nowadays the woman unfamiliar with the comforts and discomforts of corsets is a rareity, and it is chiefly to assist in the securing of proper-fitting corsets that this subject is considered at this time...''

 

In other words:

This information will guide you in creating a practical garment of both comfort and beauty!
