Inspired by Mary Brooks Picken, internationally known for her work in dressmaking and fashion, this fun guide book is a creative collection of recipes, patterns, project ideas and more. Like Picken, Barickman sets out to educate women and inspire them to embrace domestic hobbies and live a D.I.Y. lifestyle. Unlike many other sewing books, inside Vintage Notions you'll find essays and projects specific to each month of the year. Among 34 seasonal recipes, crafting and decorating ideas Barickman also offers the reader timeless advice on everything from health to style. For anyone new to sewing or for those looking for a handy reference, a glossary of stitches with 150 definitions and 30 stitch diagrams is provided. Use this sewing book to learn about trailblazers like Picken while using age old practices that are still relevant in modern day domestic arts.
