Having a chat about historical sewing things, whilst sewing historically. The usual.
Patterns of Fashion 5 can only be ordered through the web shop at School of Historical Dress (shop.theschoolofhistoricaldress.org.uk). Due to the high volume of orders currently being processed, the order link has been temporarily closed, but I shall add the direct link here once it has been reopened (likely by next week).

*Please note that I strongly discourage purchasing new books from Amazon, as the extremely discounted price cuts the royalties of the authors to an unfairly low amount without consent. Seeing as there is currently no other way to purchase the books listed, I have linked the Amazon pages here and will replace them when better purchasing options become available.
