Alice Brooks Design Catalog

I recently came across another of the Alice Brooks designs catalog.    It's full magazine size, standard black and white photography and totals 24 pages in all.

The contents, as you might expect, are of the typical mail order variety.  

 There's a delightful assortment of childrens sewing patterns, 

 And sewing patterns for toys and dolls, 

 Womens fashions for sewing, knit and crochet, 

 And, of course, delicious designs for crocheted home decor. 

And, the catalog could not be complete without transfers. 

The catalog is not dated.   I do have a several of the patterns represented in my shop and a quick check showed the catalog to represent designs between 1946 and 1956.  Based on this, I'd say this book was issued 1956 or early 1957.  

The center pages contain two simply patterns that were included as free to customers.   I've added these two designs to my shop listings  --- Free, of course.   The complete pattern shows in the below pictures, however, go to the shop should you like a full size page in PDF format. 



 I've posted all of the pages of the catalog in one of my Facebook Albums, appropriately called Alice Brooks designs, should you like to look through the entire book  

Thanks for dropping by, 
Lorrie
