1970s sewing book





This little gem was one of my dad's finds. It's a french 1976 sewing book "Coudre pour sa maison".
I've got the attention span of a pea when it comes to reading instructions of any kind, so I can't say it's a good read, but I love the patterned cover and the 1970s kitsch photos.
Isn't the second image glorious!?
