I was pouring over this old gem today. It's Life magazine, July 1944. There is a feature article on clothing and it's control by the War Production Board.The War Production Board was established in the United States to regulate the production and allocation of materials and fuel during WWII.

The ad above is for a brand of sheets that the manufacturer wishes they could sell you, but they can't because they're busy serving Uncle Sam's requirements. The whole magazine is dotted with stories of resourcefulness and days gone by. And so I'm inspired. I will be featuring projects on my blog in the upcoming months called Mend and Make Do.
