A sort of miscellany of reprints of 1920s articles by Mary Brooks Picken, who really should have received credit somewhere on the cover or title page. It's very pretty, but a little disingenuous. Not for beginners at all, since it is a reprint from a time when they expected readers to have extensive sewing knowledge. Super nostalgic, but not very practical.
