Woven cotton plaid and tatting. I bought the tatting on Etsy awhile back. The two vintage patterns from my own daughter as a child. I'm planning on making a couple little dresses with white collars and tatted edges to perhaps sell.
These patterns were a gift from a blog reader. Helen sent me a LARGE box of wonderful vintage patterns she inherited from a relative and thought of me. I was thrilled and so thankful to have these patterns now in my care. I have them filed in with mine in number and maker order in my new drawers. Helen also included several vintage 1959 sewing books which I will actually refer too. Thank you Helen so much I can't wait to use a pattern!
I was very happy with the way the collar came out. Gertie taught me how to grade the seams in the correct way. Grading if case you are not familiar is trimming. She also calls for that pick stitching by hand all along the edges. I am now to the next step of lining the jacket.
