I made a real Victorian linen chemise by hand using the pattern from the book Manual for Needlework and cutting out. My first completely hand-sewn garment!
I am making an Edwardian style Beatrix shirtwaist with pintucks and lace insertion. Read how I design and make the details and adjustments to this pattern.
I am making a modern version of a 19th century pattern. This allows me a chance to learn to flat line a skirt and to make hand felled seams. Learn with me!
