She Said it Better!

I normally don’t post anything other than finished sewn objects, but I just had to share this.  The lovely and talented Lauren, over at http://wearinghistory.blogspot.com wrote a great blog post about her motivations for sewing from vintage patterns.  I agree with every single one of her points and as the title of this post says, she said it better than I ever could.  Please read!

About andreahg

I'm a stay-at-home wife and mom to two boys, a cat and two rough collies. I love to sew and knit with vintage patterns, primarly from the WWII era.

  1. You’re absolutely right – I read her blog regularly.

    I wanted to ask you if you have a system (?) for upgrading patterns. I’m on the large and tall side and haven’t used vintage patterns much because the larger sizes are so hard to find (or very expensive)?

    Love your blog and read every post.
