1912 Dress Project

I wanted to share my recent project: making a 1912 dress (well, blouse and skirt) with a pattern and barely any instructions. Like most costume and history buffs, I'm obsessed with Downton Abbey. So lots of sewing was done while watching. This is a dress for the character Marion in The Music Man, which is set in 1912 also. I'm super proud!

You should be proud, it looks great! Is sewing your job or is it a hobby that you spend a lot of time with? I love Downton Abbey too, I wish they could make another season. And I love to look at clothes from different time periods.

Tomorrow, at the museum where I work, I will actually spend time in an exhibition about folk art, with lots of old clothes made by people at home, with lots of embroidery and details. And I can do it during my work hours.(I will try to take some photos to share on my blog.) Since I work as an informant at the museum it's important to know all the exhibitons and buildings. There's sooooo much, so it will take time to know it all.

Sewing is a hobby that turned into a job and is now back to being a hobby. :) It's one of the very few things that I've taken time to research, understand, and hone my skills with without any outside requirement to do so. That is why my blog is so much about the amazing things done with sewing.

It definitely comes through that you love things done with sewing :-) Would you like to have it as a job again?
