Fashion Service MagazineJanuary February 193516 pages including covers 8.5 x 11 inchesgood conditionContains no actual patterns. This extremely rare magazine was published in the mid 1930s and features many pages of lavish fashion illustrations. This magazine was part of a body of publications produced by the Woman's Institute of Scranton, Pennsylvania and served as a supplement for the students of the sewing, millinery and cooking correspondence courses they offered. The instruction materials for those courses covered general garment construction, while the fashion service magazines offered a more specific, timely view of current fashions and how to make them. This extremely rare magazine is full of gorgeous illustrations by Alice Seipp, discussion of era fashions, and miscellaneous homemaking tips. They serve as a fascinating window into the every day life of the era. This issue contains no actual patterns, but served as a catalog. It features daytime fashions, millinery, dresses, maternity wear, lingerie, and more. The condition is good. There is a center crease to all pages, probably from its original mailing. There is some age related wear and bumping to pages. Items will be packed with care, and I am happy to combine shipping. (Please wait to pay until you have a received a combined invoice.) I use recycled packing materials if possible, but if you'd prefer otherwise, please let me know. Thanks for looking--I'm happy to answer any questions you might have.
