Pattern testing is a great way to stretch my boundaries, for example, though I’ve been sewing for decades I seldom put in zips or use knits. Tomorrow, I’ll post about more modern sewing.
For a long time my sewing was historical in nature and zippers are a bit modern and so are knit fabrics. The 1912 project was a good place for me to dip my toes in the pattern test world. Alas, the blog is no longer available, but here is my version of the princess slip . More photos can be found here and here.
I also made the E0162 skirt, but the photo of the actual skirt didn’t survive my computer crash.
The E01991 blouse didn’t fit me very well, later, I found out it was due to not understanding the vintage pattern instructions. I wrote a post on the 1912 blog but alas it also is no more.
However, I do have two photos of it on my manequin.
