Through my blog I’ve started what I like to call my German Pattern Experiment. Using the two 1930’s German pattern magazines that I own, I am attempting to sew my way through as many patterns as I can. I don’t speak any German and still consider myself a novice sewist (though perhaps it is time to move towards “advanced beginner”).
Anyway, this is a cami-knicker lingerie piece that I made as my first pattern from this experiment. It is more of a wearable muslin, which is why I made it from a lovely cotton voile, rather than silk. Though I did use a piece of left over silk from my Pendrell Blouse I made this fall.
If you like the pattern, I have converted it to a PDF and am offering it for free to all followers of my blog.
