Past Projects - Archives

This is a list of past garments I have made, back before I started this blog. These go back more than ten years, so it may take me a while to post all of them. Some I did so long ago I can't even remember what patterns I used, if any, so some will have very scanty information attached to them.

The best source for seeing my past work is The Antique Sewist - Flickr page, which I stopped using regularly some time ago. It take me a while to transfer more than 1500 images to this blog.

I do wish Blogger would allow for a kind of linkable thumbnail image setup without it turning into a html code nightmare(as a novice, I consider ALL html code to be a nightmare). Therefore, I will have to settle for vague descriptions of the gowns and links to their respective pages.
