I bought a new toy, a Singer 201K made in 1945, on a whim recently. It’s a beaut little machine and and I’m enjoying playing with it and learning its quirks.
I had an idea as I was sewing on it – what if I made it my mission to find a pattern from 1945 to sew with it? Maybe this Simplicity 1305 or McCall 6273. The Vintage Sewing Pattern wiki makes it easy.
And then I had another idea… what if we made it a sew-along, matching the age of our machines with the age of the pattern we make? Whether your sewing machine was made in 1932 or 2002, it could be a lark.
Anyone want to play? How old is your machine?
