Victory Needles
Keep 'em Flying! 1942
During the years for World War 2 it was considered your patriotic duty to
clothing. One of the ways women could help with the war effort, besides having
Victory Gardens, was to be frugal with their clothing. Taking an old item and
making it new was all the rage and this pamphlet is one of many produced
during that time as a guide to help the home seamstress remake her boring
clothing into up-to-date fashionable garments.
"Throughout America, millions of
women have returned to the fine
art of home sewing to show their
Patriotism and to do their part in
a national emergency."
