Did you see the announcement on my site? The size 16-26 Ladies’ Classic 1950s Wardrobe Pattern is up for pre-order (paper version—ePattern up Monday). I’m so excited to have it ready at last! 😅❤️ #fiftiesstyle #1950sdress #curvyfashion #patterndesign #1950sstyle #curvygirl #vintagestyle #retrostyle #retroglam #fitandflare

Looook! Proper printing lines sorted! I’m labeling pieces on the sheets tonight, and my hope (hold thumbs!) is to get this up on the site this weekend (pre-order for paper patterns; instant download for ePatterns!). 🙏🏼🤞🏼👍🏼 1950s Wardrobe sizes 16-26 coming UP! #newpattern #patterndesign #patterns #getitdone

So, what’s holding up the next size range of the 1950s Wardrobe pattern now, you ask? Printing problems. We’ve managed to puzzle all the pieces onto three A0 sheets, but, in the process, the lines got so faint they are barely there. 😫 I’m having the digitizer redo the pieces with thicker lines so it’s easy to see what you need to cut. Sooooon... I am so sorry to keep you waiting! #newpattern #comingsoon #patterndesign #designproblems #ifitsnotonethingitsanother

Katrina is my long-distance soul sister. Not only does she make such gorgeous things from my patterns, but she poses in front of BLUE hydrangeas, my favorite flowers on earth! 😍 #Repost @katrinaariana with @get_repost ・・・ Reminiscing about this Edwardian blouse I modeled for @s_and_s_patterns using their Beatrix Shirtwaist pattern... 💕 I dyed a @robertkaufman eyelet ecru, added a yoke seam and a few tucks, and cluny lace trim at the sleeves. Fun trivia! This hat was actually worn by Karen Grassle (Caroline Ingalls) on Season 2 of Little House on the Prairie! It's in my collection along with the gorgeous matching gown... You can read about both outfits on the Edelweiss Patterns Blog by searching through the archives back to 2011 and 2012. #historicalcostume #sewing #sandspatterns #edwardian #anneofavonlea #greengables #moviecostume #robertkaufman #kaufmanfabrics #littlehouseontheprairie #edelweisspatterns

How exquisite is Aurora in her dress made from my 1950s Wardrobe pattern?! 😍🤩 #fiftiesstyle #retrodress #1950sstyle #1950sdress #retroglam #fitandflare #Repost @aurorasdreamworld with @get_repost ・・・ Debuting my new 50’s style dress for Sweden’s national day today. Made from pinstriped suit wool and using @s_and_s_patterns “Ladies Classic 1950’s Wardrobe Pattern”. Loving it! #50sfashion #vintage #retro #memade #sewing #vintagedress #summer #besamecosmetics #senseandsensibilitypatterns

Maren made this lovely Chemise a la Reine from my Ladies’ 1780s Portrait Dress pattern. I love the ruffled neckline and the blue sash! “My dress is handsewn, from thin cotton voile and cotton canvas, tied with satin ribbons around the waist and neckline. I’ll have to give it a deeper hem, but it is incredibly comfortable, light and airy, perfect for a hot summer’s day!” Wonderful work, Maren! ❤️👌🏼 #georgiandress #georgianfashion #chemisealareine #historicalfashion #historicalcostume #historicaldress #historicalpattern #marieantoinette

Teaching my oldest daughters and two friends to make bodice slopers as preparation for perfect fitting when they make dresses from the patterns they’ve chosen. Learning the building blocks of dressmaking is an adventure. Gonna be fun! #sewingtogether #sewingclass #learning #patterndesign #patterndrafting #makeityourself

Oh, my goodness! We don’t photoshop our models to look fake-perfect, but I am thrilled @sunkissedstudio edited in the steam for the train in this shot! #vintagestyle #steamtrain #1950sstyle #fiftiesstyle #retrostyle #retroglam
