Absolutely fascinating article. Loved all the photos! I particularly appreciated the details of seam construction and the photos of the piecing. When I've made reproduction garments, I've often had to piece, and have felt a little guilty about it. No longer!

Thank you very much for this, Katherine.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And just to let you know, just about every antique thing I own is pieced somewhere. Even an evening bodice from the 1820s. Piecing is very period :)
