I was just searching for a date on this pattern so I could update my vintage pattern collection page with this little beauty…
…when out popped this little cutting which tickled me, I must say:
If you do try this at home, remember “It is best to adjust it while lying down.”
In the latter months?!! I can just imagine trying to get up off the bed, like some ungainly upside-down tortoise.
And there’s me thinking the 1940s was all about glamour, inside and out! Doh! It’s a wonder all 1940s babies weren’t born squished like Flat Stanley!
Incidentally, I didn’t find an actual date. I’m assuming (once again) that this pattern dates 1940ish but any more accurate hunches are appreciated.
