During my recent winning streak I won the book Horrockses Fashion off the peg style in the 40's and 50's by Christine Boydell. Threadsmagazine.com was having a giveaway and I actually won! Never say Never.... Above is a picture of a what was probably a limited production dress...check out the bodice......

The Beautiful Vintage feminine prints and styles will serve as great inspiration. My daughter loves looking at this book
because she loves dresses and they have a few children's styles of the 40's and 50's featured in the book. And she wants one of everything....
My sewing list is growing...
 My library is growing.....
Hopefully my skills are to...

Whats your inspirational sewing book?

Wow! I never win giveaways, congrats! I like the book Sew What Skirts by Francesca Denhartog and recently I've been flipping through Do It Yourself Clothes by Cal Patch. I would like to get Handmade Beginnings by Anna Marie Horner.
