Anyway, I have been spurred into a flurry of planning and pattern & fabric procuring in recent days by my getting wind of the That's Sew Cinematic Sew Along being hosted by Rhinestones & Telephones, My happy Sewing Place, Meg The Grand, Delfinelise & Veronica Darling. The scope of the sew along is to create garments inspired by costumes on the Silver Screen both big and small.
I knew I wanted to take part and I had just the thing for it, but first some back story which I'll make quick. I acquired Vogue's New Book For Better Sewing, I was online at the right time and I snapped it up for a pittance of what they usually go for I think the person might not have quite realized what they had or they just wanted to get rid of it. So I snapped it up; I thought acquiring the book would be the battle, turns out getting the patterns is the real war. I have been able to get 2 of the patterns. "The Raglan Sleeve Coat" Vogue# 3431 and "The Late Day, Short Sheath Dress" Vogue # 3385 which relates to my sew along plans.
