Christmas came early at the Atelier with the arrival of the new and updated edition of “Patterns of Fashion 2” by Janet Arnold. This book has been a staple in period dress for years but the new edition takes it even further with detailed diagrams, color pictures, and an improved layout. If you’re interested in the construction of late 19th Century garments, this is definitely the book to get. It can be ordered HERE.
G iving this extant skirt new life today and finishing a secret project this week that only Adam knows about so far. No spoilers until it’s finished! 😁
So much fun! So glad to be back. This event has always been the best way to begin the winter holidays. Thank you, Tuula Auvinen for this image ❤️
Pretty on the inside is important, I love the surprise of a pretty silk bayleuse for ballgown hems that only show while twirling on the dance floor. 😄
