Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s - Fagoting Trim

This is a great tip from Ruth Wyeth Spears for the home sewist and the 1920s. It features fagoting, a type of trim that provides a see-through band in a garment (unless you face the back of the fagoted section). Fagoted trim was popular in both the 1920s and (to a small degree) in the 1940s.

Ruth providers her usual great instructions and illustrations, so be totally inspired with your next frock!


  1. I seriously love all these tutorials!!!

    1. They are so inspiring, aren't they? These tips make me want to put all other tasks to the side and sew wonderful 1920s items!
