Vintage Sewing


July 13, 2009

Hello and greetings.  This is my first post.  I’ve finally completely my first successful project from a vintage pattern.  I’ve been teaching myself to sew in earnest for about a year and recently it started to really click.  Things seem a bit easier and I’ve conquered my frustration – now the challenges seem like a fun puzzle instead of an insurmountable impossibility.  For the complete story, see my new blog, Projects and Preoccupations, to journal my learning progress.

Reading this blog has been a great source of inspiration, so thanks posters!!
Pattern from eBay and finished dress
  1. I love to read your blog, and am fascinated with old patterns. All these styles repeat themselves in one form or another. Keep doing what you are doing. We love it!

  2. Beautiful dress! I bought the same pattern several months ago, but have yet to make it. I'm inspired now! It turned out great!

  3. You've done SUCH a great job of that pattern! Great stuff.

    I might go and look at your blog now too!
