Readers, if you'd like to see the real Cathy Lane in her Forties silk charmeuse dress, hop on over to the Mood Sewing Network today.

I'm a native New Yorker and sewing fanatic! I started sewing in 2009 and today make all my own clothes using vintage sewing machines and vintage patterns. I also sew for private clients. Welcome to the warm and whimsical world of Male Pattern Boldness, where the conversation is sewing, style, fashion, fabric, and more!
