The 1912 Project is looking for test sewers to sew and blog about working with the transcribed patterns from 1912 editions of La Mode Illustree – “a beautiful French fashion journal of the period – with the goal of making all of the patterns from the entire year available.” This is in anticipation of the Titanic’s Anniversary, April 15, 2012.
I like the idea of being a test sewer. I also like the idea of sewing from historical patterns. I’m sure I’ll be perusing books on pattern alteration, grading and all the fun that comes with sewing for myself. However, not all the patterns will be for women. Transcriptions of patterns for men and children also need testing so I’m going to have fun with this project.
