Happy Friday! Let’s share another laugh and a look back at one of my favorite findings from my vast library of vintage resources.
Here’s another tip from Dressmaking Made Easy by Mary Brooks Picken, which is full of etiquette tips and advice, in addition to dressmaking instruction.
According to Mary, a lady should always be mindful of the way she sits. I could probably benefit from this advice myself no more “bramble-bush slouch” for me!
Have you ever sat on the edge of a chair — only shoulders touching the back? If so, you know how ugly and awkward it is. Why say more? Try this bramble-bush slouch — convince yourself of its unattractiveness; feel how tiring it is. Sit up, and make yourself sit up hereafter.
Check back for more quirky quotes and images each week (and find more of these timeworn tips in my book Vintage Notions)!
