We’ve gotten requests from our followers to  post more information on sewing and construction.  Well, we thought we’d start with a classic.  If you can just get past the old school pre-feminist ideas of home economics and the nuclear family social construct, you will find that the information about paper pattern use, marking and even basic construction techniques is really fantastic.  We were even reminded about thread-marking for darts, which for anyone who sews, is a godsend.  It takes a little longer sometimes, but it’s accurate!  Enjoy!
