Get ready!

We're going way back! Further than the 20s to the 1800s.

I started working on a Mrs. Lovett dress that I've been planning since oh I dunno the movie came out in theaters. I bought the fabric way back then too which hopefully doesn't cause trouble now because I need a little more of it.

The progress thus far is the skirt is assembled and gathered. The bodice is half done. I need another color of fabric to finish it.

I am very excited about this dress. Don't worry you'll see it when it's done. Watch out lame Halloween costumes!

Anyway I don't have any other place to showcase this so it's going here!

Commercial Pattern Archive is opening its doors until Wednesday, August 19th.

So many patterns! I haven't even made it though the first 500 of 1920s yet!
