I am a procrastinating perfectionist!! For some reason I feel like I can't start a project until I have the means to complete it perfectly. I am going to work hard at changing that about myself.
My purpose in starting this blog is indeed shameful self-promotion! I plan on marketing my own line of historical dress patterns and I'm trying to create some interest and attract a following of 1920's enthusiasts.
As far as I can tell from my personal research, there is a need in the sewing pattern market for historically correct 1920's patterns with size nesting for ease of alteration and clear and accurate instructions on construction. I have amassed a sizable reference library and have many years of designing, drafting, and constructing experience that I imagine could prove useful.
My plan is to start from the inside (next to the skin) and work my way out, examining the many options in dress available during the era. I will post my research, inspiration pictures, pattern drafts, step by step sewing, fitting, and construction guides, along with embellishment ideas and resource links.
