My kind of sewing. I learnt all my techniques from Martha Pullen, her website is very good and some of her shows can be watched on the internet on the Public Television US networks

For the blanket, bonnet and pillow I just used squares etc. If I am doing a dress I use a pattern for the bodice and sleeves.

I do French heirloom sewing by machine and what you do is make your fabric from lace and fabric joined together.

So to start if I wanted a bodice with two rows of lace going down the front and some tucks either side, I would first make the tucks and attach the lace to one piece then another the same and a centre panel sew them together and make a rectangle of fabric before cutting out the shape of the bodice. The same with the skirt I just have a piece of fabric into which I insert tucks and lace and anything else I am using then, you can join pieces this way with french seams or overlocking.

Say I wanted to make a front panel with lace and tucks etc going across, I would make that up to the width and length I needed then for the rest of the skirt I would maybe do tucks just at the hem edge and then join to the front panel.

Don't know if that makes any sense but there is a technique of inserting lace into fabrics so it all looks seamless. The first lesson in Hello Dolly explained the technique, I don't know if anyone ever made it up though LOL

I had all the Martha Pullen books but I used to be overwhelmed and thought - I can't do that, it looks too much work. Then I went to some MP classes in US with Kathy McMakin and lo and behold it was easy peasy once I had been show how!

Don┬┤t worry dear.
I was asking about pattern because I have some and when I have time I can copy them and send them to you if you like.

Hi Cristina, yes a pattern is needed, it uses a raglan sleeve daygown, but I'm sure that if you sew, you should be able to adapt a pattern to make one, it is a basic shape.

Maybe one of the ladies here has a pattern?

hugs Doris

I usually freehand cut that type, I do have the Martha Pullen daygown books somewhere and I am sure it gives measurements for the rectangles and the angle of the cuts for the sleeves. Will have a look if anyone is interested.

I cut back and front rectangles and smaller ones for the sleeves the join the together and make a binding for the neck. This has to have side seams so as to get the sleeves in correctly and you can do lace insertions and tucks before you cut, this style makes such a pretty simple dress I think especially if you can machine embroider or hand embroider some details

I┬┤ll see what I have here.I must have many patterns.
One of my sons bought me every baby cloth magazine he sees.
When my children were babies I usually sew everything for them so I┬┤ll have a look when I have time and send you both some of them.
I┬┤ll see what is better to send you by post or by mail.
