Another ’30s sewing comic

Last year, in my first post to We Sew Retro, I posted about a late Thirties comic strip called Sally Makes a Conquest. I wanted to share another J.C. Penney advertising comic strip: How Ginger Got the Job!

How Ginger Got the Job!

(Is it me, or did someone disagree about Penney’s prices?)

Unlike the earlier comic strip, this one credits the patterns illustrated—McCall 3363 and 3364—but they aren’t yet on the wiki.

For more details and discussion see my blog.

Oh gosh, this is wonderful. It’s got me thinking how much I need a wardrobe upgrade, though!

Love this! I agree with Pixie- a wardrobe upgrade is in order!
