  • Recent Purchases Posted on June 28, 2012

    Hey peeps! As you all know, I either sew or knit all of my ‘vintage’ articles of clothing… I rarely purchase them.  I do have to admit to you all, I actually feel guilty when I buy a vintage garment instead of making it.  It feels like cheating. Before you interject to tell me I’m… Read More »

  • Guess Who’s Knitting Again Posted on June 26, 2012

    Yeah…. that would be me.  :) It’s been a super-long time since I’ve posted an official WIP or a completed knitting project which means that I haven’t been actively knitting.  My last knitting post was from back in February, and I’m pretty certain I haven’t been knitting since around the same time.  *Gasp* With the early… Read More »

  • My Grandmother’s Honeymoon Outfit Posted on June 25, 2012

    About a year ago, my mother gave my one of my grandmother’s old blouses from the 50’s.  It’s a sheer poly with white polka dots on it.  I’ve worn it once or twice, but it doesn’t get out much.  Even though it’s sheer it’s unbreathable since it’s made of polyester so I have a tendency… Read More »

  • Today’s freebie pattern comes once again from the June 1949 edition of Stitchcraft.  As soon as I saw it, I felt I needed to share it with you all since it’s just so pretty & feminine. Isn’t it darling?! Here’s another B&W image of the chevron bathing suit: The open back so feminine and pretty…. Read More »

  • Away On a Mini-Break Posted on June 20, 2012

    Hey guys!  I’m actually away on a mini break right now, in Michigan on a lazy beach trip with my husband’s side of the family.  So I thought I’d leave you with a quick post of what I’m most likely wearing right now.  :) I’ve been away since Monday, which means I was super productive… Read More »

  • Completed: 50s Scalloped Blouse Posted on June 19, 2012

    I’m quite thankful that I decided to take a mini break from Sew Weekly over a week ago.  I have no idea what happened but all my weekends are completely filled with events & activities, now till the 2nd week in July!  I’m hoping I can continue to have sewing projects in the works, but… Read More »

  • Happy Father’s Day: Dad, Dad, and Dad! Yes…. I have three dads.  Some may think it’s a detriment to have a divorce in the family, but now that it’s happened 12 years prior, it’s no longer a big deal.  I think it’s even better now since I have more family and an additional dad.  And… Read More »

  • I can’t make this sort of thing up peeps, the rough title of this jumper is called ‘The Pretty Look’.  Today’s pattern comes from the July 1954 edition of Stitchcraft.  I picked out this pattern especially for Stephanie since she requested more summer jumpers.  Also, I like the daisy stitch detail on the neckline and… Read More »

  • You may have noticed, but I’ve taken an unofficial break from Sew Weekly this month.  (Since saying so on my blog, I guess it’s official now.)  I wanted to take a mini-break so I can enjoy the beginning on summer and also sew what I want and on my own timeframe for a while.  *So far it’s… Read More »

  • The Vintage Bazaar popped up again, this time they were at the Aragon Ballroom.  Felix and I have been attending TVB shows ever since they started over at the Dank Haus in February of 2010.  It’s crazy to think that we’ve only missed attending 1 (or 2) smaller Christmas pop-up shows in the past 2 years.  What’s… Read More »
