Patterns, eBooks & Such…



    1. Hi, Sean – Thanks for the catch – apparently all of my demos have gone missing. I’m looking into it. I hope to restore from backups!

      1. Hi, Bonnie. Gotta love The Wayback Machine! For the record, the demos are all back online at this point. I’m working on some backend updates to make the downloads section functional again. Thanks for helping others! :)

    1. Hi, Fran,
      The shop has been offline for way too long. :( I was hoping to get it back online over winter break, but let me see if I can make any progress this evening.

  1. Been on a hatmaking/headgear binge and found your site, the northern cap is interesting but so e of the older headgear instructions are missing pictures. The wayback machine has been helpful for text, but the images have sadly not been archived as well.

    1. I will see if I have the images backed up on my lappy. Were there specific ones you are looking for?
      Also, apologies – I remember replying to this a while ago, but it doesn’t look like my site remembers it the same way! I’m the worst.

  2. Did you ever draft a pattern from your middle class doublet 2003? Which patterns of fashion book did you use? You did an amazing job and I would like to make one :)

    1. Thank you, Syrianna! The original is shown in Patterns of Fashion I, pgs 107-108. It’s listed as “Doublet for a Young Woman”. I’m sure I made a pattern. It’s funny – I’ve been redoing the office (now also sewing room), and I’ve been meaning to go through all of the patterns I have filed (which is approximately everything). They’re terrible, mind you, but if I can find the one for that I’ll see if there’s anywhere around where I can do large scanning.

        1. Well, I did not find the complete pattern, but I did make a note to put together a doublet drafting demo and one on drafting and making up those shoulder rolls.

  3. Just wanted to let you know that I can’t see any products here. It just says [show-downloads] in plain text.

    1. Oh, shoot. That’s not ideal. I‘lol take a look. (I keep getting download notices through the site so I thought things were working. Thanks for letting me know!)

      1. Thanks Ingeborg – I know what the problem is now. I just have to find the time to fix it and I am working way too much OT right now. :(

  4. I haven’t laughed out loud twice while reading a blog post in a long time, thank you! Love your style. I can’t see the patterns/downloads either by the way. I’m looking on my iPhone, so it might be a browser issue but I would think you’d want iPhone users to have access.
