1950 free sewing book : how to make gloves

Many knew the wonderful website that was VintageSewing.info.  Unfortunately the website has been down since 2011.

Nobody seems to really know what happened to vintagesewing.info and I thought it would be a shame if all their wonderful and hard work was lost forever. That’s why I’ve decided to republish it online under the same Creative Commons licence.

I saved pretty much all the texts and pictures from VintageSewing.info on my home computer back in 2011 and today I’m sharing one of their work unaltered.

Read the book

You can access the table of content and every chapter of the book from this page : How to make Gloves by Eunice Close 

More ?

I’ll be adding some more books from their work, when I get the time. As some of you know, I’m pretty busy right now launching my little bag patterns company : Sacôtin. The boutique will open next week : May the 15th to be exact (you still have time to try and win a bag pattern by the way).

The next book I’m thinking of adding is “Modern Pattern Design” by Harriet Pepin (1942). Because it’s a pretty large book and re-publishing it takes time, I’ll probably publish one chapter at the time.

Do let me know if you’d rather have me put another book online first, as written above I have pretty much all their work saved on my computer.

  1. Hello Vero,

    I am interested in making a pair of gloves & I came across your website while trying to find some information on the subject. I was wondering if you would mind emailing a copy of the book 1950 -‘How to Make Gloves’ by Eunice Close. I have read the terms & conditions/Creative commons licence on your website & I only intend to use the book as information for my own personal use.

    Thank you for your help I will look forward to hearing from you

    Kind Regards,
