The Complete Book of Sewing: Dressmaking and Sewing for the Home Made Easy

Publisher: New York: Book Presentations, 1943..

Bumps on corners, edges, and spine ends, a couple of spots on front board and all along rear joint. Covers hand and machine sewing techniques, clothing construction, mending, curtains and quilts. From foreword: "This is a book on Sewing made easy--Sewing made fun! The author..was a small girl when she first learned to sew. As she grew older she quickly became impatient with time-wasting Victorian sewing traditions--became too busy to labor long over a costume that required weeks of work when the same effect could be developed in a few hours with the aid of short-cuts."
