Favorite Sewing Book Nancy ZiemanAs I was standing at my book shelf filled with sewing and quilting books looking for inspiration for this blog, I spotted the first sewing book that I bought while in college, “The Vogue Sewing Book.” On a shoestring budget, this book in the early 70s carried a price tag of around $20, that was a big expenditure for me!

Paging though the techniques, brought back great memories and recollections of all the times that I have referenced this book—then and now. I spotted an underlined section under the Concealed Plackets technique. I can just see in my mind’s eye the blouse that I made with that tip!
