So, after poking at all of my vintage patterns repeatedly, I think I've decided what my next project will be. The goal being to create something that is work appropriate (i.e. of an era that, while vintage, can still be worn on a daily basis) and has a zipper because I need to learn how to put one of those in. Yes, I know, shocking! I've been sewing for over a year now and I still don't know how to sew a zipper. But, I have yet to foray into more recent eras that actually used zippers. And, really, this lack of knowledge is holding me back. I am going to conquer this and then we'll see what happens.

So, the pattern I am going to use is an Anne Adams pattern from the 40s (#3967). I haven't be able to find a picture of it online, but I do like it and it is, I think, mostly my size. I may need to size down a little bit, but hopefully that won't be too difficult. All the parts are there, except for the original collar. Whoever owned the pattern drafted their own one-piece collar as opposed to the two piece collar of the original. After making a good portion of my niece's mermaid costume, I am feeling the sewing mojo coming back to me. I kind of burned out getting the 20s and 18th century done. Speaking of which, I owe people pictures from that.

But, now I think it is time for bed. More later!
