"A Stitch in Time" - a 55 minute podcast about the dressmaking as a necessity, a career option, and a creative outlet can be found here.

On the same page is a link to a radio show from 1993 called "Running up a frock", and a brief newsreel of fashion students parading their garments from 1957. Fantastic!

Thanks for pointing this out. I enjoyed listening to it -- while sewing, of course!

It's a custom-made designer original. I made it myself.

Thanks for this link. I listened while I got our part of the Thanksgiving meal together. I love learning about practical history and this was excellent.

I listened while sewing the buttons on my latest effort. It was very good and I approved of the value it put on sewing as a skill.
