“Historically accurate” stamp on patterns

The summer holidays are coming to an end. I am back home from my summer travels and am ready to start working on releasing new patterns.

While on holidays I had time to reflect on how to improve my patterns system. And I have decided to introduce a stamp in the right top corner of my historical patterns. I love doing historical research and strive to create patterns as detailed and as historically accurate as possible on a doll scale. This stamp’s aim is to reflect that the garments are not merely the ones that are “inspired” by history and “look like” outfits from a particular era, but that they actually have the authentic seams placement, authentic cut, gussets, etc. The outfits may still have some modern shortcuts (like using snaps for a gown closure or slightly simplified headwear) but on the whole they are made as close to original garments as possible.

The one for the current Tudor patterns looks like this:

I have amended the current 3 patterns to include this stamp and will be using it from now on on my other patterns. For each new pattern I will be changing the time frame and the country (though most of my outfits are based on the British history, I have plans to introduce historical outfits from France and Spain).

This is how the stamps look on my current patterns. What do you think of it?

    Отлично!!! Выглядит будто это “старая” выкройка, не современная http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_good.gif
