Vintage Book: Clothes for You by Mildred Graves Ryan and Velma Phillips

Copyright 1947, 1954.

This book seems to be directed to high school level students to teach them how to look their best and be a smart clothes consumer. Highly applicable even today! The book has three parts: 1) What Can You Do to Be More Attractive?, 2) What Factors Influence the Buying of Clothes?, 3) How Can You Make Good-Looking Clothes?

I tried photographing the preface. Let me know if you can read it after clicking on the pictures for an enlarged view.

Of course I won't be posting extensive excerpts from the book (copyright, you know). I may summarize certain sections of interest. If I find any good illustrations, I'll pass them along.
