News From The Library

All sorts of things this week!

I’ve added Twitter to the website – so I hope you will all go over and sign up at the site’s front page –


Just scroll down towards the bottom and you’ll see the Twitter sign up box.  I’d love to be kept up to date on what vintage fashions you’re sewing!

If you haven’t seen it yet – the 195o Ladies Dress and Jacket is finally finished and up on the website.

f7138_It features some very interesting shaping – including a means of creating an attached collar on the jacket, by slashing the neckline.  The facing of the jacket is also sewn in such a way, as to allow the jacket to “wing open” at the lower edge.  Those little upside down “V”‘s you see in the picture at the bottom of the jacket are openings.

The techniques are so interesting, I’ve been thinking of sewing up the jacket, just to see what it looks like.  Since it’s a smallish size, I wouldn’t be able to actually wear it – but I think it would be a lot of fun to sew.
