1932 Wardrobe School Project

Some of you may know that I have a thing for collecting old scrapbooks, especially if they have something to do with fashion. I happened to find another scrapbook that not only has some pictures of what a 7th grade girl would possibly wear in 1933 but it also has swatches of fabric next to each outfit.

I bought the book at an online scrapbook and I wasn't quite sure how many pages it had as there were only a couple of pictures.  I was so excited when it came in the mail because not only does it have quite a few pages, it also has some information about the girl who made the book.

This book was made by a young girl named Valeria Henneous who lived in Erie, Pennsylvania and attended Gridley Jr High. She had sewing class every Monday with Ms. Vernon in Rm 16 and I'm sure this book was one of her assignments for this class.
