    Dubarry 5836 in Cream Linen Posted on May 31, 2011

    Since the weather held up, I was able to go out and take some pictures of my completed Dubarry 5836 skirt. I love the V-shaped waistband yolk of this skirt.  For some reason I think of this shape being modern, but this pattern is from the 40’s so I’ll have to readjust my thinking.  The… Read More »

  • Moms Stash from the Attic Posted on May 19, 2011

    When I was back at home visiting my mom for mother’s day, she insisted that I go through some of the boxes of stuff I had kept from high school and earlier.  I admit that I kept little, just because I have no place for it in my apartment.  But then she brought down a 2… Read More »
