Catalog Sunday

This Sunday I have images from a late 20's color/styling sewing book from Indian Head Fabrics, Sew So. Choose your color pallets wisely, ladies.

  2. There is a sample fabric catalog I have my eye on on eBay but they want too much for it! Sample books are quite around, but for a 20s book to have its swatches is rare :)
