Maggie May Clothing is partnering with Past Patterns Pattern Co. to bring you the absolute BEST in DIY historical sewing! We have drawn from Saundra Altman’s meticulously researched historical sewing patterns and curated for you a collection of sewing patterns specifically suited to reproducing every day wear for ladies and children.
Past Patterns is THE STANDARD in historical pattern making and has been providing us the most authentic and historically accurate sewing patterns since 1979. We are pairing each carefully selected pattern with our collection of reproduction historical print fabrics to bring you the highest quality materials for all your D.I.Y. needs!
The fabrics shown in the image galleries are used for example. They may or may not be available at the time of purchase. Please be sure to SPECIFY YOUR CHOICE of fabric by including the FABRIC NUMBER at checkout.
The full skirt is gathered into a flattering point at the waist front and back. Two pockets, one large in the back and another in the front for your watch make this a practical dress.
The original fabric is a cotton plaid, woven in a light blue, white and yellow. The original dress is the one with the puffy sleeves and shirt collar. We replaced the shirt collar with a short standing collar so popular in the practical clothing of the 1880s and removed the puff at the top of the sleeve to give you a style variation.
