All sewn up

YOURS (UK) - - Your Letters -

I thor­oughly en­joyed the re­cent ar­ti­cle Sewing With Mother. In the Fifties and Six­ties I used to go to a depart­ment store in Dundee called Draf­fens. You could choose your pat­tern and fabric and an as­sis­tant would check your mea­sure­ments. While you went for a cuppa she would cut out the gar­ment for you. This was es­pe­cially use­ful if you were mak­ing some­thing with ex­pen­sive ma­te­rial as you only paid for the ex­act yardage re­quired. Doreen Black, Kin­car­di­neshire Ev­ery orig­i­nal con­tri­bu­tion pub­lished gets a £10 High Street voucher, so keep all those let­ters and emails com­ing in.
