I am so excited to be writing this from my new website. I look forward to sharing my journey as a maker, researcher and teacher of histocrical costume.
To get things going I wanted to share with you all my favourite page from Mabel Erwins 'Dress Design' 1940 on Dart manipulation.
I have recently been writing a paper about pattern books published between 1935-1955 which is how I found Erwins text. I think this is just an inspirational page of creative cutting which could be used today.
Hope you love it too !
