Welcome!  I’m Katrina (Casey) Holte and I’m the pattern designer for Edelweiss Patterns.  Over the last several years I’ve designed vintage dress patterns inspired by the Sound of Music story, and I’m a lifelong fan of the von Trapp family.  As a long-time seamstress and student of historical costume, I enjoy sharing photos from extant clothing collections from my trips to England, as well as tips I’ve learned from my last decade of sewing fashion and couture garments.  

When I’m not busy sewing or blogging, I often spend my time dancing, reading, cooking, and spending time with my husband.  I recently got married in the summer of 2015 to my sweetheart (whom I met at a historical dance of all things!), and I look forward to continuing this blog with an appearance or two from time to time from my husband. 😉

    Happy sewing, everyone!

So long, farewell
