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!

For School Wear

1912, November, Page 24

Girls’ Dress
Another frock in very becoming style is presented in design No. 4784.  This garment closes at the front, which makes it convenient for the child to put on and off.
The waist has shoulder-plaits front and back, which extend to the waistline.  The closing-line of the waist is cut diagonally, and is outlined with braid, which extends down the skirt to the bottom.  The collar and cuffs are trimmed with braid.
The skirt is plaited and joined to the waist by a belt.  Serge, cashmere, cheviot, plaid woolen, checks and stripes are good development-ideas.
The pattern, No. 4784, is cut in sizes for from 6 to 12 years.  To make the garment in the medium size will require 3 ¼ yards of 36-inch material, or 2 ¾ yards of goods 44 inches wide.  Price of pattern, 10 cents.


Children’s Dress
The delightful little model given in design No. 5962 is made of white Jap silk, with insertion trimming.
It has the waist tucked in the form of a yoke front and back, broken in the center at the front by a double row of insertion, with a plain space in the center.
The collarless neck is cut round, and is finished with edging.  The short sleeves have a band of insertion, finished with edging.  The skirt may be plaited, or gathered, having straight lower edge.
The pattern, No. 5962, is cut in sizes for 4, 6 and 8 years.  Age 8 requires 2 5/8 yards of 36-inch material, 2 3/8 yards of 44-inch fabric, or 2 yards of goods 50 inches wide, with 1 ½ yards of edging.  Price of pattern, 10 cents.


Girls’ Dress
The pretty dress shown in design No. 5964 is made of red-and-white plaid woolen, with plain white collar, shield and cuffs.
The blouse closes at the left side of the front, and the three-gored skirt is joined to an underwaist.
This is a very attractive garment, and one quite simple to make.  A red patent-leather belt holds the blouse in position.  The tie is of red silk.
The pattern, No. 5964, is cut in sizes for from 6 to 12 years.  To make the dress in the medium size will require 2 ¾ yards of 44-inch material, with ½ yard of 27-inch contrasting goods.  The underwaist requires ½ yard of 36-inch material.  Price of pattern, 10 cents.


Girls’ Underwaist Set
Design No. 5977 shows a splendid underwaist set for a little girl, and one very simple to make.
It consists of an underwaist, drawers, and a circular or gathered petticoat.  The neck and armholes are trimmed with edging, and the petticoat has two rows of insertion, and is finished with wide embroidery edging.
The pattern, No. 5977, is cut in sizes for from 4 to 12 years.  To make the garment in the medium size will require 7/8 of a yard of 36-inch material, and 1 ½ yards of edging for the waist, 1 yard of 36-inch material, 2 yards of insertion, and 1 ½ yards of edging for the drawers, and 1 yard of 36-inch material, with 3 ½ yards of insertion for the circular petticoat.  If the gathered petticoat is used 1 ½ yards of 36-inch material, 3 3/8 yards of insertion and 2 ¼ yards of edging are required.  If made of one material, the set requires 3 5/8 yards of 36-inch material.  Price of pattern, 10 cents.
