This evening I finished something that has been in the works for a month now. I have barely left the sewing room for a couple of weeks, and though I have taken breaks and worked/ blogged about other projects, I have been keeping this one under wraps until it was done. It's done!
Today I released my greatest masterpiece! How did this come about? I had been collecting vintage lingerie for years and had a special fondness for 1930's and 1940's teddies in particular. In my collection, I also had a couple of incredibly rare sewing patterns from the same era. So I studied them, and studied them, and sewed muslins, and drafted, and sewed some more and now I have the perfect lingerie pattern.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Teddy - Combination Undergarment Pattern!
Granted it's in my somewhat modest measurements but it's super easy to size up. Just a bit extra at the side seams and voila!
And of course to celebrate finishing such an undertaking, of course I'm giving one away to one lucky reader.
