All the patterns available in the shop have been designed the time-honoured way, at the dining room table, with pencil and paper. They have been tried out using vintage machines, either treadles or hand machines, using the methods described on the Lizzie Lenard Vintage Sewing blog.
If you want to interpret the designs using modern machines and your own favourite methods, go ahead!
If you are new to vintage sewing and want to see what can be achieved with straight stitch machines, please visit the blog and discover the joys of sewing the old fashioned way. You will be delighted with the timeless appeal of the finished work.
