    Early Release Pattern!

    The very next pattern in my line! Currently underway, this is a multi-size pattern for a woman's quilted waistcoat with instructions for making up in matelasse, pre-quilted material, or hand-quilting. Based on original examples, this garment is worn under a gown to keep you warm in winter. Get it a week before it posts to my Etsy shop!

    Consultation & Blog Post

    Everything above (early release pattern, a discount and a Skype consultation) PLUS a blog post on a question you want answered (and I think I can answer!). Patterns will drop in early October 2019 and Skype consultations will be scheduled at our mutual convenience. A blog post will take a little longer, depending on the research and how many I have to do, but I'll do my best to get them out by the end of the year.

    Shopping Trip in PHL or NYC

    All the swag plus a one-day fabric shopping and consultation trip to the garment district in either Philadelphia or Manhattan. You pay your own transportation costs, but I'll meet you in either city and take you to my favorite fabric shops to help you search for (and hopefully find!) fabric for your next historical project. We can talk in person about your historical sewing goals, and, if there's time, visit a museum to check out inspiration in costumes or images. (Does not include the Skype consultation; you pay transportation and meal costs only for yourself. Trip must be scheduled a minimum of 4 weeks in advance, preferably on a weekday as many shops are closed on weekends. Schedule before the end of April 2020.)

    Includes:
    • Hand-written personal thank you note on a Kitty Calash card
    • Shout Out on the Kitty Calash blog
