I just purchased this book at a library book sale. I didn’t really get to look at it before I plunked down my cash, but I know I like other Women’s Day books, so I took a chance (as I had my hands FULL of books at the moment).
WOW! This is a fantastic book. A quick search online revealed that the book is readily available for purchased from used book vendors for a couple bucks (what I paid). So, if you want a book that has a good collection of women’s and children’s garment patterns – all timeless or easily updated – this is it!
The absolute most difficult crochet pattern to find is a crochet wedding dress. There is a lovely wedding gown in here that will look perfect on most brides. I say this because it looks very much like my store bought wedding gown – which wasn’t actually a wedding gown, just a long, white dress. This one is definitely a wedding gown. Check on page 53 of this book for a picture and the pattern.
There are lots of other timeless patterns in this book. See if you can find a copy for yourself!
