Cowl-Neck Tee from a Shell Pattern

I think one of the things that keeps people from trying vintage patterns (besides the restrictive sizing of some companies) is the fact that it can be hard to tell, from a line drawing or old photo, how a pattern will look made up in “modern” fabric, or maybe with a small style change.

I sometimes treat the most basic Stretch and Sew patterns like on-the-fly pattern slopers. Many of the styles are pretty straightforward, so they’re easy to use as building blocks for creating your own style.
