Discovered the other day that you can now search NT archives. Got some great stuff there. Including stuff mentioned in patterns of fashion.
Also found lots of 1920's and 50's dresses on there. Gonna keep me occupied for ages.

Ooh yay! I was wondering when they would finally do that! Thanks for sharing!

Are you familiar with Demode's list of Digital Collections of Extent Costumes?

No. Not seen that before.

Found some interesting videos about dressmaking on british pathe site...might give some ideas to vintage clothes fans

1937 fashions

Unknown (maybe you can tell me) what you can make with just 6yards of fabric and pins.
