Robert Sayle paper bag with the fabric for Bridesmaids dresses.
Joyce Badcock, in thinking about her Bridesmaids fabric purchase and the brown paper bag it came in recalls and incident which happened to a colleague.
This lady was pressing her husband’s trousers and in those days, it was advised that the best results could be gained by pressing over brown paper. She hadn’t any plain brown paper so used one of the Robert Sayle paper bags. Her husband wad not impressed when he found that he had ’Robert Sayle’ printed in red on his trouser leg!!
