this is my first post here and I’m a little nervous (mainly because of my bad english), but we get right to the point: I’m a German girl in her mid-twenties and trying to sew vintage sewing patterns. This I also collect old magazines from the 30s to late 50s. In December there was a German Sew-Along for Christmas dresses and I chose a dress of the handmade book Elsa and this is the result:
“Elsa Handarbeit und Wäsche” December issue of 1950
That was the original. I have changed something on the sleeves and decorative stitching attached.
It was my first dress and i’m very proud of it! And here you could see the whole story.
