Foundation Paper Piecing - Vintage Dresses


-Sewing machine in good working order
-Thread (I use Aurifil 50 wt cotton)
-Add A Quarter or Add A Quarter Plus ruler (If you already have the 6" it will work fine but I recommend the 12")
-Rotary Cutter
-Seam Roller (optional but HIGHLY recommended)

-Vellum, Perfect Piecing Paper, or other foundation paper.*
-Pattern - You will need to buy the pattern before hand (available at The Vintage Owl) because you will need to make copies of the templates onto your Vellum. You can print or trace these templates.

*You can use copy paper or newsprint but if you have never done FPP before it may be a little more difficult.

- You will also need your fabric. In class you will learn the technique starting with Dress B. However you can go ahead and have the fabric and templates for the other dresses so we can work on them as time permits.

Vintage Dress Supplies

Here are my versions of the pattern. I did my Dress B fabric placement different that the original but you can do the striped version if you like.

These can be made into a blocks for a quilt, hotpads, wall hangings, etc.
