I finished going through all of my patterns, tossed a few, some will go out for the garage sale, but there were a few I couldn't part with. On the left is the first skirt I made at home after learning to sew in the 1954-55 home ec. class my freshman year. I used our treadle machine and made the view with the ruffle out of a red print. This pattern preceded printed patterns. There were just series of holes punched in the tissue for identification. The western shirt pattern was used many times for shirts for my dad. It is from 1956. On the right is my wedding dress pattern.
