Clothing Restoration: Shirring dress final

Here it is. A finished panel. Success.


After a lot of rotten thread, rotten elastic, and thread clippings, its done.
Both are done, and I was now able to put the dress together.

Clothing restoration: Repairing rotted shirring pt 1

Hello lovely people.
Before I get started with this post I'd like to let you all know I have a new repro pattern available. It's another addition to my men's patterns and a great pair of late 1940's slacks. The pattern is a 38" waist and is available for pre order in my etsy shop.

1890s corset cover repair.

Hello lovely people.
Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been scrambling with so many other projects and just trying to stay afloat.

I haven't been sewing much for myself lately, but I have been doing a lot of mending, repairs, and sewing for others.

I will be posting a slew of vintage repairs that I have been doing for Playclothes, including sheering of some great Tiki dresses.


Right now I have this lovely antique corset cover that was in need of some delicate repairs.
