Make Do And Mend Booklet

Make Do And Mend

I picked up this little booklet from a local museum, it’s called ‘Make Do And Mend’ and it’s a reprint from 1943.

The Make Do And Mend campaign started during World War Two to encourage people to preserve clothing whilst materials were being rationed.  This little booklet has some cute line drawings and sections on things like ‘The Moth Menace’, How to care for ‘Mackintoshes’ and ‘Rubber Aprons’, How to wash Rayon, and How to repair a Corset.
