I made a chemise following drafting instructions from a Finnish 1892 book called Tyttöjen käsitöiden johtamisen ohjeita kansakouluja varten.
I made turn of the 20th century drawers using a Finnish pattern from 1892. For sewing, I used my hand-crank Singer 12 from the year 1877.
I made a walking skirt using a free 1902 pattern from Finnish Käsitöitä magazine. Ompelin pitkän hameen vuoden 1902 Käsitöitä-lehden kaavalla.
This time I made an Edwardian inspired lace blouse which gave me an opportunity to learn how to make invisible seams in lace.
I decided to combine Edwardian pattern drafting with modern fabric and made a cute shirtwaist blouse that goes with both jeans and skirts.
I made a turn-of-the-century underwear set consisting of a pretty 1912 corset cover and a Victorian underskirt by the Black Snail Patterns.
Recently, I joined Minerva Crafts blogger network. For my first blogger network project I made this 1930s blouse out of yellow chiffon.
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.
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 made another Gertie blouse and a simple everyday skirt using the 1940s skirt pattern. This resulted in a nice coordinating vintage-inspired outfit.
