  1. Hi Kathleen - I have an idea that keeps knocking around my brain but I need more info, and you may be my source! Is there a book with all of these wonderful 20's Ruth Wyeth Spears 'patterns' in it? I found one book from 1925 on Amazon but have yet to receive it. My question would be does someone still hold the patent on these patterns? I'm seriously considering putting a book together with several dozen of my favorite patterns and then my version of them, with instructions and pictures (like I've done on my blog) that people can use. What do you think?

  7. I am trying to find a 1920s dress pattern you had in your blog. It was very easy, from a long piece of lace, cut in the front center with an opening for the neck. It was supposed to be worn on top of a dress. You made a comment about the kind of dress in the article, that you were not sure if women would have that kind of dress nowadays and I wrote a comment. I have a cut of lace that would be perfect. I looked everywhere in the 1920s era and couldn't find it. Can you help me?

    1. I just remember: it was from a French magazine and you translated to English.
