How cool is this? 1920’s patterns/draft manual with gorgeous illustrations (unfortunately some are products of their time) from P. Clement Brown’s “Art in Dress 1922”. Time to break out the colored pencils!

I’m not post much as I’m getting married Nov. 1st! All the wedding stress and appointments and planning means not much sewing time.

I did manage to get this patterned and partly sewn up the past few weeks.

It still needs a slip, binding, and hem but at least it is no longer looking sad on my dressform.
