A collection of patterns and ancient sewing method

🧵 1979...
At Christmas I receive my first sewing machine: an Orange Singer. I immediately sew a princess dress for my little sister.

I am 6 years old and I am a vintage addict but at the time I do not know and the word "vintage" does not even exist! I caught the sewing and handmade virus.

Over the years, I continue to sew: corsets, disguises, gala dresses, cosplay (again, the word did not exist!) ... always looking for historical aesthetics.
This is difficult because there are no easily accessible period costume patterns. At best, there are patterns of disguises but which do not satisfy me because they are often far from the reality of the dresses that I see in museums. There is a big difference between a garment and a disguise!

🧵 I start looking for ancient sewing methods and sewing patterns. I peel the fashion publicatons, the libraries that keep old books. An ant's work, but I have the soul of a collector-historian-archaeologist! Little by little I gathered an important collection of original French and English patterns essentially.
I am passionate about cutting and sewing methods that make it possible to make tailor-made models with a perfect drop and well-being.
Because let's remember, standardized sizes are a recent invention of the fashion industry that tries to make us believe that it is possible to standardize the human body!

🧵 2010...
I return to my home region with my whole family and I get involved in an Art Deco festival: Biarritz Roaring Twenties. Every year for 3 days, Biarritz returns in 1920, a time that made its worldwide reputation as a seaside town of the party!
Volunteering, I intervene passionately as a costume designer, speaker on the fashion of the years 1920-1930. I led a sewing workshop to learn how to make a complete outfit for a lady, in 1925. I dress my whole family using my patterns. We are very noticed by festival-goers and the press.

🧵 Why?
Simply because I do not make costumes or disguises, I make clothes using the cuts and techniques of the time. Golf pants, evening dress, cocktail dress, daywear, underwear, little girls' dress, hats, gloves, bags, ... I find in my collection, a great source of models to make.

🧵 Today, it is still difficult to access this type of documents and I want to share with you, passionate about vintage fashion this collection. Most of the documents I have are good relative condition contained in their age, however they are fragile, dusty, yellowed, stained and fit with meters of adhesive tape. Real attic treasures!

That's why I set out to digitize my patterns, methods and sewing books, respecting the original document, in its colors, in its organization to make it an easily downloadable document or a quality reproduction that will be pleasant to consult and use.

I invite you to visit my shop regularly or subscribe to the shop as new patterns will be offered as my digitization work progresses.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a particular model, I may be able to help you!

Yours

Clear

PS: I still have the Orange Singer sewing machine!
