manufactured by John Barker and Company Ltd - London, 1935 - 1945

Fully illustrated pattern book with cloth samples of Barkers' "novelty fabrics" including synthetics. Prices annotated. Flowers had long been a popular and feminine choice for cotton dress fabrics, but designs which featured simple, floral motifs in repeat were also much in demand for cheaper rayon fabrics. This Barker and Co catalogue features 'novelty' fabrics which were suitable for making chic but inexpensive bias-cut dresses.
