Extensions For Blouses

In the June 1956 issue of the Workbasket, Lillian A. Chord sent in this item for the "Women Who Make Cents", a collection of money making ideas readers sent in to the magazine. Chord stated that many of her friends "complained about seams of their blouses showing through skirts and blouses slipping out," so she came up with this with this solution.

The missing text (continued on the next page) reads, "They furnish the material -- and old slip, pajamas or other material -- so I have little cost except my sewing thread and I get fifty cents for each blouse I extend."
