The Mode in Dress and Home, by Dulcie Godlove Donovan, 1935

This beautiful, charming little home economics text book from 1935 is one I was lucky enough to snag an actual copy of online, and it can be found available to read for free on openlibrary.org, here. My copy hasn’t arrived yet, but until then I am drooling over the contents at the link above!

While filled with the typical superficial messages about beauty and “looking good”, it also gives tips on taking care of your home, family, finances, menu planning, learning to sew, making your own clothing, and taking care of your garments, all in a very 1930’s way. It is also full of adorable illustrations.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I am!
