Butterick has released some gorgeous (and pretty darn authentic) new patterns by Nancy Farris-Thee this season! While Simplicity seems to have had the upper hand on market for the past few years, it looks like Butterick might be giving them some competition.
Butterick Pattern #5901
Over the past few years, Simplicity has been catering to Victorian era sewers and I am excited to see Butterick picking up on an era well overlooked amongst almost all pattern makers:
The ROMANTIC Period!
Butterick Pattern #5832
With all the hoopla about the upcoming 150th anniversaries of the American Civil War, the market has been flooded with tons of Victorian era stuff. Now Simplicity seems to be moving on to the Steam-Punk market. However, Butterick’s release of this beautiful Romantic era gown makes me wonder if the next big thing is going to be the 1830s and 1840s!
I do hope so!
Happy sewing everyone!
I am delighted to have found your blog and website! I have been sewing costumes for about 6 years, and enjoying it very much. I am sitting here looking at my Butterick Pattern 5832 and wondering if I have anything in my stash that is suitable, and here it is on your blog! So great to read your section on sewing 1840’s garments. I’ll check back frequently 🙂
