Hi sewingmel, I really liked your tutorial on using vintage patterns. I have been collecting for 30 years and really enjoy sewing from them. I really agree on reference materials to refer to when sewing may I add one to your list. Since I make reproduction of Victorian and Edwardian I have found that the Authentic Victorian Dressmaking Techniques edited by Kristiana Harris, originally published in 1905 by Butterick Publishing Company, under the title Dressmaking Up to Date.

Thank you for your tips, they are invaluable.

I like these instructions. I buy old patterns at local thrift stores and garage sales. I am one of the lucky few in my generation that had a mother teach me how to sew. But even with what she taught me there are still things I come across in patterns that I do not know how to do. There are also some great digital resources
