Friends, it has been a long time since I wrote about a sewing book (seven months) but don't think I haven't been accumulating sewing books -- I have; I just haven't gotten around to writing about them. But I recently acquired a book, "Decorative Dressmaking" by Sue Thompson (Rodale Press, 1985), that I had to tell you about.
Friends, thank you so much for your many words of sympathy regarding Michael's mother. They mean a great deal to us.
It is time for me to return to sewing. Having finished my 1920's cotton lawn kimono, next up were the pajamas, using the vintage Butterick pattern I found this summer at the Chelsea Flea Market (see pic above).
I'm a native New Yorker and sewing fanatic! I started sewing in 2009 and today make all my own clothes using vintage sewing machines and vintage patterns, in addition to sewing for private clients. Welcome to the warm and whimsical world of Male Pattern Boldness, where the conversation is sewing, style, fashion, fabric, and more!
