This is a set of two vintage sewing instruction manuals published by the Singer Sewing Machine Company in the 1920s and 1930s. They are instruction books sold at Singer Stores. The illustrations in these books are a page out of another time, and a great example of the fashions and designs of the time.
There are two books, "Shortcuts to Home Sewing", and "How to Make Children's Clothes". They both are tinted with age, but the print and illustrations are still distinct and readable. There is a corner torn from the front of the children's clothes book, but otherwise they are in good shape for printed materials of this age.
They will be a great addition to your sewing collectibles, as well as great instruction books for sewing with vintage machines.
