hey everybody! i am teaching a quick little workshop on saturday on ‘how to use a vintage sewing pattern’ to what i am assuming are people with little to no sewing experience…. i have my whole little lecture laid out with a lot of little tips and tricks…. but i was thinking that maybe some of you might be interested in sharing some of your favorite helpful tips and secrets when it comes to using old patterns!
i’ve got a few things in there on storing patterns, cutting them out, reading marks on unprinted patterns, altering the bizarro b-w-h proportions from the 1950s to 2011 sizing and so on…. so any other good hints would be appreciated thanks folks!
