Spiral Bound Book Republication™

Originally Published - 1945!

Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the original ''The Aprons & Bibs'' with ''Over 30 Sewn & Crocheted Ideas!'' We scanned and reformatted a scare original and are pleased to offer you this wonderful vintage WWII / Swing Era Apron and Bib Making reference for your reenactment or personal recreation sewing pleasures!

This item has clear, concise directions to make many complete aprons and bibs using draft patterns! (Original is not for sale) 

*** Producing the best CD & Spiral Bound Book Republications for you since 1999! ***

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!

Our customers say:

 ''Item arrived quickly & safely. Great product. Good seller to deal with. 5 star!!''

''Lovely Item! Something that you could never find elsewhere! Thank You''

 This would be a great reference item for those interested in WWII era reenactment, opera, stage and theatre costumers, historical clothing students, fabric artists and more! I hardly know where to begin!

This is certainly a fine source of historically valuable techniques and inspiration for the creative seamstress and fabric artists out there who recreate the clothing for women, misses' and girls from the WWII Era. This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft instructional revealing our heritage from an earlier America culture!

An Excerpt:

''Here are aprons designed primarily to defend your dresses, and aprons designed promarily for conquests. The former are as attractive as they are sensible; the latter are the merest wiffs of femininity - demure or coquettish.

Here are aprons for gifts, aprons for bazaars and fairs, and aprons for around-the-clock sechedule in the home.

Here, too, are aprons designed with an eye to the costumes to be worn under them. Do you wear slacks ...Do you act as cook even when you're giving a dinner party...''
