"Je Fais Mes Robes et Mes Blouses" (I make my own dresses and shirts)
Hélène Pasquier


This is an authentic french vintage booklet from the 40's digitalized with love by me onto one single pdf file. It was published during war time restrictions, and it helped women to stay elegant in these difficult times : it's a true piece of history of this period.

*********************

PLEASE NOTE THAT :

- ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE IN FRENCH.

- ALL THE MEASURMENTS ARE GIVEN IN CENTIMETERS.

- ALL THE SEWING PATTERNS ARE SINGLE SIZED (SIZE 16/TAILLE44)

- THE SEWING PATTERNS ARE REDUCED AT A 1/10 SCALE, YOU WILL HAVE TO DRAFT THEM YOURSELF ACCORDING TO THE MEASURMENTS GIVEN

*********************

This book contains 46 pages and you will find :

> Sewing patterns that you can see on the pictures below. They are presented on a reduced scale charts but can be easily reproduced. Measurments are given in centimeters and onto one single size (size 16/taille 44).

BUST : 96 cm / 37.8 inches
WAIST : 75cm / 29.5 inches

The instructions are quite shorts and frugal as usual on these days, but you will find a lot of pictures to help you in your sewing process.

I highly suggest to have a good sewing method book to guide you along the drafting & sewing process.
