Vintage 70s Sewing Book Making Children's Clothes by Good Housekeeping


Making Children's Clothes by Good Housekeeping published by Ebury Press in 1977

The book is illustrated, no photos, but  the illustrations are really charming

The book is hardback, no dust cover.  Light wear to the cover.  

Fab useful little original vintage book
