i love this website .
I have the book ‘modern pattern design’ by harriet pepin.
The complete book is available to read for free on the site. go to the main page and browse ‘1940’s’ you will see a link for table of contents and then links to each chapter. http://vintagesewing.info/1940s.html
there is so much info on this site from Sewing in 1893 to making hats and gloves of the 1950’s.
A wonderful library in your home for all to admire and learn from.
I highly recommend it.
