Lingerie Design: A Complete Course & Vintage Details: A Fashion Sourcebook

By on August 29, 2016

I let out a prolonged “ooooooooh” when these two big beautiful books landed on my desk so I thought you might like to see them.

LaurenceKing_Small

The first is not technically a sewing book but I guarantee you’ll reference it constantly in your sewing if you love to sew vintage. We used Vintage Details: A Fashion Sourcebook as a giveaway prize recently and honestly I had a hard time letting it go to the winner. Imagine me wavering in a post office parking lot, clasping the packaged book and intoning “My preciouuuuussssssss” for a solid five minutes.

This book is both beautiful and huge. You’re going to put it on your coffee table and every coffee break from that moment on will last at least four hours as you get lost in the pages and pages of photos of necklines, cuffs, pockets, fastenings, darts, and flounces.

If you’re the kind of person who likes seeing a photo of a garment’s inside as much as the outside, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this book. You can find Vintage Details on Amazon here or trot down to your favorite independent bookstore if you have one locally. No room in your budget right now? Don’t let that hold you back – you can always ask for a copy at your local library.

IMG_8349

The second, Lingerie Design: A Complete Course, comes at a great time for the sewing community because it seems like more of us than ever are trying to sew our own underthings.

Sidenote: I’ve been a little bit obsessed with this Bra Making Forum facebook group lately…I’ve got the popular Shelley Bra pattern from Pin Up Girls cut out and ready to sew but working through the instructions in this book is definitely next on deck.

IMG_8354

What I love about this book is it doesn’t just cover the history of lingerie, the construction details and delicate embellishments, but it shows step-by-step how to construct your own sloper for slips, panties, petticoats, sleepwear, foundation garments and bras. Where the other book is all about inspiration, this is a practical guide to designing, drafting, and construction. Have a squiz at the contents…

IMG_8350

Lingerie Design: A Complete Course can be purchased direct from the publisher here or on Amazon here. Again, don’t forget your local library if your budget is tight!

1960s | Giveaway

GIVEAWAY: Limited Edition Mondrian Dress Pattern

By on June 14, 2016

gbsb

After watching last night’s ‘Sewing the 1960s’ episode of the Great British Sewing Bee, we’re all about iconic Mondrian-inspired dresses. If you’re in the US, don’t fret – you can watch it on YouTube.

YSL dress

Back in 1966, Vogue Patterns released Vogue 1557 by Yves Saint Laurent (learn more about YSL’s Vogue Patterns over at the PatternVault blog) and as you can imagine it is insanely hard to find the original vintage pattern. Because of the licensing restrictions placed on patterns in the designer series, Vogue can’t just rerelease this classic design but what they can do is show you how to take one of their modern patterns and hack it into a Mondrian dress.

…which brings us to the new Vogue 1557 Limited Edition. It includes the pattern for a semi-fitted lined shift dress (Vogue 9048) with step-by-step instructions for how to use it to make a Mondrian dress – everything you need to make your own designer original.

Mondrian[6]

The bad news is that the pattern is only being released in the United Kingdom…. (UK-based readers, you can purchase a copy here)

…But the good news is that our friends at McCall Pattern Co have snagged us a copy to giveaway and our giveaways are always open worldwide. US-based readers, this might be your only chance to grab a copy so make sure you enter!

To enter the giveaway, simply comment below – I’d like to know what colors you would use to make your Mondrian dress. That’s it – so simple!

The winner will be drawn at random this weekend (June 19th) and announced here on the blog.
