Remember this pattern? I’m gearing up to release it and we’re going to start sewing soon!
This is from an original vintage pattern from 1916 and is great for your WWI era impressions during the centennial! Plus, it fits right in with the time period of many popular shows right now. Fun stuff!
We’re having a sew-a-long for this pattern. This will have the original period sewing instructions which are mostly text only. I have added some things like cutting charts and modern fabric estimations for yardage. In the sew-a-long you’ll learn to decipher and make this pattern using the original period instructions. If you’ve never sewn with an original period pattern before, this is a great opportunity to dip your toes in the water. The history of the sewing pattern is very fascinating!
As a sneak peek of what this looks like in mock up form, here’s photos from my progress during the making of the pattern:
If you want to be part of our group, we have one on Facebook. We can all post photos to share progress, fitting help, questions, and suggestions during the process. It’s a mind hive of people who all love vintage and historical sewing as much as each other.
If you don’t have a Facebook account, that’s ok, too! I’ll be posting progress photos of the process here on my blog as we make the garment up together.
You can now PRE-ORDER the mailed, printed pattern for the suit OR the jacket or skirt alone on this page of my website
