Object Description

A packet containing 8 sheets of dressmakers pattern paper, “for transferring pattern marks to fabrics”.
Made for the Singer Co, New York. Price sticker 16p so sold post decimalisation.
How used? With pattern pinned to fabric, place tracing paper colour side up underneath the fabric. Then trace all marks to be transferred, preferably using a Singer tracing wheel. See pics of instructions on packet.
Nice addition to a collection of sewing aids. Sadly we do not have a tracing wheel
