Historical Sew Fortnightly

January 2, 2014 § Leave a comment

Over the last year I’ve seen the Historical Sew Fortnightly pop up on a lot of the sewing blogs I follow. Since a big problem with my sewing is motivation, I was glad to see that they’re running the HSF again this year and I’m going to jump in. And since the first project is Make Do and Mend, it’s about time that I do something about the pile of things needing minor repairs that have been sitting around for months, namely two skirts (30s and 40s) with hook and eye problems. It’s funny how long it’s possible to procrastinate on such simple repairs, but there you go.

Also planning to use the remains of a thrifted bedsheet to do a simple cotton blouse from Simplicity 1692 (the lower right one) with rickrack trim scrounged from a friend.
