Saturday Special: Weigel’s 2060

January 28, 2012 at 9:00 am Leave a comment

My pattern choice for this week is a lovely tailored 1950s blouse with options for short and long sleeves and an inverted pleat in the centre back. It’s one from the Australian pattern company Madame Weigel’s – you can read more about their history here.

As you can see from the inscription in red biro, this particular pattern was once lent to someone called Mary and it was obviously a keeper because the owner wrote a note that “this is the only pattern I would like back”. I can’t imagine (a) ever writing on my sewing patterns or (b) being prepared to part with them so easily. I’m too much of a collector… or should I say hoarder!
