Hi all, This is my first post! I have thought about posting sewing information on a blog for some time. I would like to post about hand sewing techniques and generally discuss historical sewing.
I developed many of my Napoleonic sewing patterns and had help from Kate Reynolds with a few more. I sell these patterns on eBay http://stores.ebay.com/A-Stitch-Out-of-Time-Patterns and my new website http://store01.prostores.com/astitchoutoftimenapoleonicsewingpatterns. Be sure to check both - the website does not have auction items, those are on the eBay store. Sometimes my auctions are historical garments, sometimes there are vintage items.
Anyway, I would like to start things off by discussing one of my patterns that is sorta tricky. This is the wonderful pokalem! A couple years ago I took photos of all the steps of construction. Today I took photos of the layout. First - a couple pictures of the pokalem!
