To Teach the Future Mother...






















This advertisement from the Butterick Publishing Company appeared in the December 16, 1907 issue of the Sandusky Register. The patterns for the Butterick rag doll and clothing were designed "to teach the future mother to dress the future child." In 1907, for twenty five cents, Butterick would mail customers a pattern for the Butterick rag doll as well as patterns for a kimono, dress, guimpe and coat.

I don't sew, but I would be willing to learn. I now have a new granddaughter and would love to make her something like this. I have a few years before she will be old enough, but I could probably use all the time to learn ;)
