I’m just in beginning stages of testing the original pattern of this 1910s suit pattern I hope to have out next.
This pattern will be a Resto-Vival pattern, meaning it will be very close to the original period source. I plan on multi-sizing it after I check the pattern with my muslin mock up. Included with this pattern will be the original, period, VERY limited instructions that are mostly text only. The original instructions were on the back cover, so you can see how limited they were.
My question is this… I can wait, and prolong the pattern release until I finish my final version of this suit, OR we can do a sew-a-long.
If we do a sew-a-long, I can do blog posts of all the steps I use to create, in weekly or bi-weekly installments. That way, you can follow along and create your garment at the same time. At the end, we’ll all have wearable 1910s suits!
So, what do you think? Would you be interested in a sew-a-long? It would be quite a lot of work to photograph and blog, but if enough are interested, we can do it!
We may be able to even create a Facebook group, so you can photograph your process and we can get some collective dialogue on the process and input from one another. Creating a group where we could all sort of blend minds would probably be of great help with fitting, etc. while in the mock up phase- because there will be even more people with knowledge of problem solving for unique figures.
If you are, please comment below. And if you have friends that are interested, share with them, too!
