I made matching t-shirts for my son and my husband. Also a lot of chat about our recent road trip to Lappland, featuring reindeer!
I made an Edwardian outfit with a skirt and a matching bolero jackeet out of blue linen for the summer.
I made a chemise following drafting instructions from a Finnish 1892 book called Tyttöjen käsitöiden johtamisen ohjeita kansakouluja varten.
I tested the 1900-1910s blouse and guimpe pattern by Wearing History. I must say that of all the similar patterns I have tried out, this one is the best.
I made a Victorian side-button cycling skirt out of linen so that I can ride my bike in style. The skirt pattern is a free pattern by Bikes & Bloomers.
I made an Edwardian waistcoat to match my newest walking skirt. A quick little side project, you might think! No, a lot of tailoring was involved!
I made a walking skirt using a free 1902 pattern from Finnish Käsitöitä magazine. Ompelin pitkän hameen vuoden 1902 Käsitöitä-lehden kaavalla.
I made S another Ottobre design 4/2012 Black Denim dress as the old one is now too small. I rarely go back to sewing patterns but this one was too good!
Historical sewing and classic tailoring are close relatives. So, I decided to combine a block from 1912 with classic tailoring methods to make a waistcoat.
This is my B5813 hack with wide v-neckline, button-up closure and lace trim details. On my second use of this pattern I also made changes to the fit.
