Another great find from Oxfam! If you want to see full-size versions I have put them on Flickr too, starting with http://www.flickr.com/photos/trashingdays/5099796001/.

Hi! I just came across this for the first time. What's really cool about this book, is it gives you diagrams. Instead of a tissue pattern, you measure it out. The stitchers of this breed use marking chalk directly on the fabric.
I especially like the cape-stole. It appears easy enough to chalk out, even by looking at this scan on-screen. Actually, I had been visualizing something similar! I am going to refer back to this when I get ready to work with it.  Thanks for posting these pages!

that sleeved cape/stole thingy, i saw almost that exact same project in a book for sewing for beginers or sewing with scraps or something like that last year except for theirs was short sleeved, i guess some things really do never go out of style. also kinda makes me want to actually make one now
