Sewing after all these years

Wow. I now know how to sew, kinda sorta.

 

DW is an expert seamstress from way back,  learned that early on when she made her own wedding dress.

 

Youngest daughter, who is as big a nerd as me (Almost) decided to get me into cosplay way too late in life. So, at this point I am into second sewing machine in three years. Problem is, I only know how to sew leather. And new machine weighs (literally!!) 150 pounds.

I just saw a note about the paint brand Angelus for rubber, faux leather, and leather.  Highly recommended.  I was going to mention it to my nephew when I remembered your daughter was into this too.

www.yourpatternshop.com is now bookmarked on my computer...they have the older sewing patterns I remember & miss from my earlier years.  Things like housecoat style robes, granny gowns, more modest blouses with jumpers that are more tailored than nowdays, mother-daughter outfits, and the like.  Even nice feminine but businesslike pantsuits....remember those?  I want a nice pantsuit to wear to church.  Their prices are more reasonable than most other pattern sites, too.  Now that the styles I like cost around $50 for a blouse and $125 for a pantsuit (low end, no less) I will be getting back into sewing.  So glad I learned.
