Copy cat

Today I started working on the charleston dress I’ve mentioned in a previous post.

Foto-0317I will use Stil 5357 as a base for the slip, but will modify it for a low waist and a bit more width over the knees. I decided to copy it onto some more durable pattern paper. after all it IS a vintage pattern and it’s become a tiny bit worn. Since I was anyway going to do the work, I added seam allowance and altered the bust darts so it will fit perfectly. yay me!

  1. I hate copying patterns – it takes away from sewing time too much, but I will always do it with independent or vintage patterns. Sadly it does mean I will sometimes prevaricate about starting a project because I can’t be bothered to do all that tracing! (I’ve just managed to get around to tracing the Colette Beignet pattern, which has been sitting there for months – man, that pattern has a lot of pieces!)

    • generally I don’t do this. I don’t do muslins either- I need to know my project will “soon” be ready to wear. But as I figured I’ll use this pattern several more times (some more ideas) and it WAS getting a bit worn..well. It didn’t take quite as long as thought it would:)

  2. I like to copy patterns when possible, especially if I’ll be using it again, otherwise what will I do if I need the same pattern in another size? Buy the pattern again! Looking fwd to seeing the finished article ;0)
