Inspired by Casey’s Browns excellent blog (Casey’s Elegant Musings), I bought my first vintage sewing pattern the other day. It turns out Barnardo’s vintage in Edinburgh has a great selection of old sewing patterns, and the nearby Rusty Zip also has a few mixed in with its tights.
Unlike Casey Brown, my sewing experience to date consists chiefly of hand-sewn alterations of existing garments and making blinds on the sewing machine. Given this, I’m suspecting that I’ve set myself rather a challenge, especially as I think I will need to grade up the size of the pattern (for which I will use Casey’s excellent guidance).
Nevertheless, I am going to add this to my list of sewing projects, to follow the rather less exciting project of making yet more blinds. I’ll keep you posted on the progress (of the skirt, that is!).
