I really like sewing vintage style clothes on either my Singer 201k or my Singer 99k sewing machines, both of which date from the early 1950′s.
I have a friend who loves the Victorian period and recently acquired a ‘period correct’ Frister Rossman machine, dating from 1886. Fancy being able to sew perfectly on a machine which is 123 years old and has sewn the genuine article!!
I was inspired therefore to try and restore my own Singer dating from 1891 – she must have seen some real corset sewing action in her time, and corsets are my favourite thing to sew.
