Wearing History

Wearing History is doing a give away. They are releasing a new 1910 blouse pattern its simply smashing.
I'm really excited the pattern looks beautiful and I can't wait to see what else Wearing History will create.

In 2009 when I was going to go to an Edwardian event there were very few options for patterns for this era. I'm so happy that companies are starting to release more.

Don't get me wrong Truly Victorian has MANY patterns for all of the Victorian styles but I can never get the fit right on their patterns. The sizing throws me off.

1912 Challenge...

March has somehow snuck up on me... One minute it was barely the begining of February and not its March. *SIGH*

I have got a 1912 corset on my cutting/sewing table and I have many things to get ready for the Celtic Faire in but one and a half weeks.

Before the Lovely Kim at VPLL took over the request for the patterns the other groups were recieving I was fortunate enough to get the Bodice pattern I really liked its been printed out (Pdf file) and is currently being taped together. I will have to enlarge the size, since the pattern is bust sized 36. (I am not a 36 by any means. :D) After reading many of the blogs about this pattern I believe I will lower the waist line a bit as well.

I am still waiting for my Groups assignment... (I'm group 26) and we haven't had the chance to get our assignment yet. Understandable since there are so many people in our Challenge. I can't wait to have a little more time and be able to try out some of these lovely patterns. :D
