    I Made a …. 1940s Knitted Swimsuit

    A knitted swimsuit???? That’s right I knitted myself a vintage two piece swimsuit using a vintage knitting pattern from the 1940s. I had to grade the pattern up to get it to fit and swapped out itchy woolen yarn for a more comfortable cotton but I’m so pleased with how it turned out.

    I Made a … 1820s Dress for a Regency Little Dorrit Costume

    My 1820s Little Dorrit costume is complete! It’s actually been finished since February but as I was rushing to meet the Foundations Revealed competition deadline at the time I was too stressed to do a blog post.

    Since then I’ve made lots of videos about the making of process so I won’t go into too many details here. I’ll just talk a little about my final thoughts on the project.

    You can also read my other post about this project for the undergarments and the chemisette.
