Here is this week's challenge:
Week 5: Timeless Classics:Vintage Patterns-- 6 Seamstresses had 2 weeks to complete this challenge. Sewing a garment from a vintage pattern is challenging. The pintucks, pleats, and precise fit can be difficult to master. We all choose our own vintage pattern and modernized the piece. We were to update it with styling, embellishment, or fabric. We will be judged on difficulty, craftsmanship, how fashion forward your look is, and FIT!
For my garment I focused on perfecting the fit, sewing a quality piece of clothing that will last and staying true to the spirit of the resourceful seamstress of 7 decades ago. Plus I wanted something I can actually wear... I just can't pull off the costume-y vintage stuff like some folks can.
