- I am looking forward to this 2012 year and now even more so with the Titanic 1912 Sewing Project. I am up to the chanallenge for it will educate me in vintage clothe works. The best part is meeting other needle and thread enthusiest like myself and opening up to future friends for years to come…thanks to Janyce Hill!Posted by ask4cjsewfine | January 21, 2012, 12:29 am | edit
- I also am looking forward to the adventure… and with greatest appreciation and thanks to Janyce Hill for the courage to set this goal for herself and her generousity in sharing it with everyone. I shall try my best to meet the challenge…. Bonnie M from Burnaby BC Canada
- This going to be fun. I have enjoyed all the messages recieved on Facebook and am looking forward to starting my project. It has been said you can eat an elephant but only one bite at a time, hopefuly this project is like that.
- Me too, me too!!
I check the mail box every day! Trying to wait patiently for the first pattern to test.
- I can’t wait to see what I’ll be sewing either!
Btw, everyone, if you comment when you are signed in, your name (and avatar if you set it up) link back to your blog. =)
- Just TOO many blogs to read!!!This is going to be a fantastic project, and an exciting year ahead. I already have many vintage and antique things to help make the gowns!! Ooohhh, how wonderful!!
- I can’t decide which part will be the most rewarding, sewing new patterns, learning more about this historical period, meeting and making new connections or learning new things. Group efforts are so rewarding. I haven’t decided to set up a blog as of now. I’ll just post comments/pics and see where it goes.Thank you so much Janyce Hill, Patternmaker Software, all support staff and to all of you!
- If you’re still interested in test sewers, I would be happy to volunteer. I’m used to working with vintage patterns that are unmarked and vague at best on the instructions/descriptions.Posted by Cisa Barry | January 31, 2012, 7:07 pm | edit
- I really WISH I had heard about this before, as I would have loved to have the chance to be involved in something like this!! I’m going to send luck to all you lucky gals (and guys?!) instead, and watch with baited breath to see the results as I hand draft and adapt a lot of vintage/historical patterns, as you say, from not very many instructions, and the results can be somewhat interesting!! Good luck from the UK!! xxxPosted by midnightlaura | February 2, 2012, 7:39 am | edit
- I have just received my pattern and rushed over to send in my $10.00 donation for printing and mailing. Thanks Janyce
- I am a bit confused. I rec’d an email saying I am in group 5 and confirming download patterns but haven’t gotten anything else. Have patterns gone out to everyone or have I missed something?Posted by Melani | February 4, 2012, 11:33 pm | edit
- Hi I am MaryAnn also in group 5 and have not received anything yet
- I don’t think you’ve missed anything. I think just the first 2 or 3 groups have started. I’m in Group 4 (possibly 3 – there was a little email confusion with our contact list title) and we are still waiting on patterns as well. I’m sure Janyce is still getting patterns together for lots of groups and sending them out in stages. =)
- I find the passion and energy put forth by your members inspiring. If you wish please see my post on this site.
- I see some of you have already received patterns. How exciting. I’m looking forward to seeing what I get. I’m planning to make them my size if I possibly can. Hope I can find fabric locally, but I may have to purchase on line. Except for quilting shops, we only have a JoAnn fabrics. Anyone else planning to make a muslin first?

- We are over 230+ members, looking forward to everyone’s versions.
I’m blogging about it on adonising.blogspot.com, starting with the corset.
- How many groups are there in total? I live in Washington, DC and I’m group 15. I have not received a pattern yet, but I’m drooling over the challenge pattern. Does anyone know where I can download it?
I’ve been sewing for 15 years and I’m always looking for people who sew in my area. If you are in the DC area and are in group 15 e-mail me at Laurelledesigns@yahoo.com
- I think there are at least 30 groups.
You need to reply back to Janyce’s email about the “Feb Challenge Pattern” to get the pattern emailed to you. I started my mock-up (costumer’s term for a muslin) of it today.
Btw, I like your name – it’s a good name. =)
- I think there are at least 30 groups.
- I heard from Janyce today and I am so excited. I had tried a few times to get my blog going and am excited I finally have something that will energize me to blog! I just love the fashions from the Titanic era and am very excited to jump right in to make work on these.
Doing this project looks to be very fun and challenging.
I can’t wait to hear what group I will be in. The above comments have really helped me understand what I need to do to keep everyone posted on my comments.

Thanks for sponsoring this project! Teri

- I completed my February challenge – the ladies princess slip from March 1912. I decided to do it doll size as I couldn’t imagine myself wearing anything that had 12 yards of insertion lace. It’s posted on my blog – http://www.merrymeg.com.
- I haven’t received a pattern yet, but I’m so jazzed about this project. I wrote a short blog post about the project here – http://www.vintagegams.blogspot.com/2012/02/1912-titanic-sewing-project.html.
- Hi, I’m in Group 9 also. Looking forward to the project and challenges of recreating these fashions!
- am in group nine. Hello! I live in the SW corner of WY. Nice to see another WY girl! Hi India!! We will have to share our e-mails so we can keepin touch once our pattern arrives. I am so excited!!Posted by Joy | February 6, 2012, 7:28 pm | edit
- Another group niner here. Are we anywhere near each other? I’m in central Wyoming.Posted by India | February 1, 2012, 5:54 am | edit
- Welcome to group 28! I am waiting impatiently for my 1st pattern.
- I really don’t know how to use blogs and I am still trying to find some time. I have just moved hose and find I have waaaaaay tooooo muuuuuuch stuff. And of course I couldn’t find the linen in my stash that I wanted to use so I am using a dark brown linen instead. I haven’t made it to the art gallery yet to check out any 1912 clothes they may have for appropriate colours but as I am not going for the truly authentic look, I guess it doesn’t matter. I am hoping to have some time free next fortnight as I have been called up for jury duty and have organised a week off work, so as long as I don’t get some nasty long trial I should have some time in the city. I have cut out the pattern and the material for the skirt and it looks pretty straight-forward. I may be able to finish hand sewing in at the courts.
