In 2014- Wearing History goes 1910s-WWI Era

I’m so excited about some of what I have in store for you this year!  I’m gathering things together and prepping patterns to be made into Wearing History Resto-vival patterns from original period source materials.  Here’s a peek at some of which I’ll have in store for you this year, God willing.

There will be a WWI era suit, circa 1916, that could easily transition into ladies uniforms with a little ingenuity.

    Aren’t you the busy bee! I can’t wait to see the results. The corset cover does indeed remind me of a sweet little summer blouse.

    Do you have a rough timeline when you’ll be publishing these? A group I do living history with is having a centennial event at a WWI military site in August to commemorate the start of WWI and I would love to have the suit made up.

      I plan on starting the suit right after the next pattern is finished, which is a 1940’s hat. I’m hoping next week to get started!
      The suit did have some really wonky things done to it, which I noticed when I was prepping the pattern to be made, so part of it is going to be restoring it back to the original shape, which involves some testing in mock up form. I think the lady who originally owned it was very petite, and chopped it off, but the pattern gives original length specifications, so I can put it right back. Since it’s fresh in my mind, I want to get cracking on it first of all of these!

    Thank you so much for doing this!

    Theses look great! I’m really glad for all the work you do to make these patterns. I haven’t sewed any yet, but I am planning on some in the future.
