Sigh, I need to update this blog more, or at least soon enough that I stop forgetting whether I’m on WordPress or Blogspot.
So I found a 1930s skirt tutorial online and was all set to work on it when I realised a pattern I already have, McCalls M4924, would make an excellent 1930s skirt. View C is bias-cut, and I’m going to make the godets 45 degrees instead of 90. I’ll see how it turns out.
I also recently scored a sewing book from 1941: “The Complete Book of Sewing.” Thought I’d share this page about yearlong fashion (click for full size):
Here are some patterns that would work for these ideas:
January’s huge boutonniere (I think this pattern comes from around the same time period in fact)
July’s flower neckline
July type hat
August’s wool crepe dress
November’s sequin collar
