Welcome to my blog about Home Arts Needlecraft Magazine! I "discovered" this publication about 2 years ago and fell in love with it to the extent that I had to start collecting issues as I ran across them. The magazine began publication with its September, 1909 premier issue, and continued through March, 1941. It has been interesting to follow the changes through the 30 plus years the magazine was published. It is a great source for needlework, fashion, recipes and short stories. Through my journey of sharing my issues online, I hope to discover a pattern of what was popular in different forms of needlecraft over the 3 decades. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I am (so far!) enjoying posting articles and projects from the issues. Thanks for visiting!

Clever Outer Garments

1912, November, Page 26

Girls’ and Children’s Circular Cape
Here is a splendid idea for a school-wrap for a small girl.  The cape is very simple to make, and can be finished in either of two lengths, and has a hood.  Serge, broadcloth, and similar materials may be used to develop the model.
The pattern, No. 3915, is cut in sizes for from 2 to 12 years.  To make the cape in the medium size will require 3 yards of 36-inch material for the long cape, or 2 ½ yards of the same width for the short cape.  Price of pattern, 10 cents.
Girls’ Double-Breasted Coat
A delightful design for a coat is offered in model No. 5986, which can be made in a short time, and of any of the new woolen fabrics so popular for this purpose.  The model is double-breasted, and has a sailor-collar, single revers and cuffs of contrasting goods.
The pattern, No. 5986, is cut in sizes for from 4 to 12 years.  To make the coat in the medium size will require 3 yards of 36-inch material, or 2 ½ yards of 44-inch, with ¾ of a yard of 27-inch mohair.  Price of pattern, 10 cents.


Boy’s Suit
Quite the thing for school-wear is the attractive sailor-suit for a young lad, given in design No. 5976.
The blouse is made with large sailor-collar, trimmed with braid.  The shield is removable, and there is a handkerchief-pocket at the front for completion.  The sleeves are nicely plaited at the bottom
The bloomers are made in the regulation fashion, and are finished with legbands or elastic.
Blue serge, with red braid and a red-silk tie will develop the model becomingly.  Blue, trimmed with black or white, is also nice.
The pattern, No. 5976, is cut in sizes for from 6 to 12 years.  To make the suit in the medium size will require 2 5/8 yards of 44-inch material.  Price of pattern, 10 cents.
