1946 Fabric Flowers Acc40-1246
Acc40-1246; 1946 Fabric Flowers
17-piece digitally-drafted pattern originally by McCall, ‘Style news! Make your own gay flowers to match your dress, a blouse, a beret and belt, for that expensify-ing touch to a “well-turned-out” costume. See what you can do with a few pieces of dress material, a few stitches, a bit of pasting, a little stiffening and, lo! A flower is fashioned! You can do it too! A variety of smart fabrics may be used for these fashion-wise flowers. The handmade fabric flowers to match your dress are shown in the color illustration, as follows: Rose A is shown in seersucker with percale leaves. Rose B is shown in percale with ready-made leaves. Rose C is shown in velvet. Rose D is shown in pink satin with aqua taffeta. Rose E is shown in rayon taffeta with 2 velvet leaves. Daisy F is shown in printed gingham with ready-made leaves. Mum G is shown in linen with chintz leaves and Magnolia H is shown in linen. Scraps or old garments are often usable in flower making.’
A method of stiffening material to give the flowers that “professional look” is also given.
