The 1912 Titanic Sewing Project

The 2 dresses & hats at the Rose Parade

The 2 dresses & hats at the Rose Parade

We started as a group on January 6, 2012…

I made 2 dresses, Summer & Winter:

2012 was the 100th Anniversary of Oregon Women getting the VOTE! See Oregon Suffragettes.  The LWVOR had costumed Suffragettes marching around the state!

I saw 1912 in Threads magazine ,in January, and it changed my year. Over ~500 sewers sewists enrolled in The 1912 Project to test 1912 La Mode Illustree patterns for the Vintage Pattern Lending Library. I made two full costumes, both with considerable amounts of hand embroidery. Kate Brown, our Secretary of State joined us in the Portland Rose Festival Parade wearing one of them.  They show up at various events. 🙂
