I would like to dedicate this post to my youngest son serving our country since 1998 and all like him–Happy Veteran’s Day.
I know there’s great pride in wearing your uniform–but when the uniform come’s off you want to so off your individuality –some go shopping other’s bring out the sewing machine. Tonight I would like to share some of my favorite links for the best dressmaking tips, tricks and patterns.

I plan to try this vintage Dressmaking System it’s available from, I have not located original copies yet, but you can find all the volumes as reproductions from by Bramcost Publications. I think it’s well worth the cost for the entire library.
To all that serve–Happy Veteran’s Day!
