Hi We Sew Retro-ers! I’m a long time stalker and a first time post-er. I am about to start my very first vintage pattern project and I was hoping that the We Sew Retro community might be able to throw a couple of tips and tricks my way. I’m trying to decide between 3 patterns – the Vintage Vogue reprint pattern 8811 and these two.
I’ve read all the pattern instructions and they all seem do-able. I’m a self taught beginner sewer and I try and challenge myself with each new sewing project. I will be tracing the pattern (thanks to some really big windows in my apartment), and I’ll be making a muslin version first and then figure out where I need to make adjustments on the pattern. I’m hoping to start it this weekend, so I can wear it all summer long!
