The Bishop Method of Clothing Construction


I got The Bishop Method of Clothing Construction book from 1959 for $2. I didn’t need it. But I found the “trimming details for the quality look” pages to be inspiring. I love nice details. Here are some of my favorites:


I liked the details around the buttonholes.


And these collar details are so cute.


I love these buttonholes made from tubing.


These bow details are cute.


I like the graphic look of the added felt to the dress.


The cut out parts on the collar were interesting. And I love the button pattern created on the collar.

Things I Didn’t Buy 76


I thought this “Good Cooks Never Lack Friends” embroidered art was very cute (and very true).


And although this isn’t really my style, I appreciate the effort it must have taken to create this embroidered flower art piece.


I thought this glass flower art was quite interesting.


This 1970s picture was quite cute.


And I really liked this coffee pot.
