Meyer, Carolyn Miss Patch’s Learn to Sew Book, 90 p. Houghton Mifflin, 2014, 1969. $10. Content: G.
Miss Patch takes a beginning seamtress through a few simple projects to learn the basics of hand-sewing, pattern-making and construction.
I learned to tie a knot from Miss Patch back when I was a little girl. I took great pride in practicing her technique until I perfected it. I am not sure how well it translates for sewing now, especially since sewing machines are so prevalent and cheap. It was a nice trip down memory lane for me, however, as I made every project in this book when I was first learning to sew.
