    A Novelty Print Shirt Dress Posted on June 23, 2016

    After I finished my first McCalls 6696 Shirt Dress last year, I knew I wanted to make up some other versions.  Time got away from me, good thing it did, as I finally found the perfect fabric to use for my second version. I bought this novelty print from Emma One Sock sometime last year… Read More »

  • Boatneck Renfrew
    An Ode to Renfrew Posted on June 21, 2016

    In light of last week’s news, I thought it was about high time I share my love of the Renfrew pattern by Sewaholic. If you haven’t heard, moving forward Tasia will no longer be the woman behind the helm at Sewaholic.  She’s turning things over to the peeps at Spool of Thread.  This came as… Read More »

  • Scissor Print Blouse
    The Scissors Blouse Posted on May 4, 2016

    Before I left for my birthday drinks & dinner, I was able to hop outside really quick and take some photos of my newest make & official first make towards my 2016 Vintage Pledge. I feel so very 50’s with my blouse & hair even though I’m wearing thoroughly modern jeans. I can’t believe it’s already… Read More »

  • Sweater Wrap Dress
    A Sweater-Knit Wrap Dress Posted on March 10, 2016

    Hello.  I’m back today with a proper wrap dress – as in an actual wrap dress (not a faux wrap dress like my Wren). I’m smitten with my classic, comfy wrap dress using Vogue 8784. Technically this is a wrap dress for both woven & knit fabrics.  I know right?!  I have yet to make this (or… Read More »

  • Wren Dress
    A Date-Night Wren Dress Posted on March 8, 2016

    When the Wren dress was launched by Colette Patterns a couple of months ago – I couldn’t help myself and bought the paper pattern immediately. I love the shoulder gathers and the faux-wrap effect so much so, that I started in on it as soon as it arrived.  But I already knew from seeing a… Read More »

  • A 1940s Suit
    My 1940’s Suit Posted on February 17, 2016

    I’ve long since wanted a vintage suit in my wardrobe, somehow stars aligned and I felt compelled to finally make one for my very own. This pattern I used is McCall’s 5094, a sweet little suit from 1943. Looking back on my Etsy purchases, I bought this suit back in 2011 – if you can believe… Read More »

    Fabric Suggestions?? Posted on December 3, 2015

    Hey there.  Just a quick post today to ask you guys for some suggestions of fabric. Before I get ahead of myself here’s the backstory: My mom has always wanted a beautiful chenille bathrobe – but she is very picky.  Over the summer she purchased a lovely french blue & white, vintage chenille bedspread.  Now she’s… Read More »

    Effortless Linen Dress Posted on November 3, 2015

    One of the last projects that I was able to make for my Paris trip is this easy, breezy linen dress. I bought this navy & white linen at Fancy Tiger Crafts this past spring when I happened to be in Denver for a work conference.  I’ve longed for a rustic, looking linen dress and… Read More »

  • McCalls 6696
    Eiffel Tower Dresses Posted on October 27, 2015

    It’s no secret that Meg, Michelle, and I are friends and we meet up for knit nights at a local cafe.  So of course we’re always pondering and dreaming about fabric, patterns and the like.  It was very natural of us to say “Wouldn’t it be amazing to go fabric shopping in Pairs?!” as we… Read More »

    Oh boy, where do I start???  Back in… I dunno May let’s say, I saw the most fabulous fabric on Emma One Sock, this beautiful faux leather.  It looked like art, like beautiful painting.  I ordered a swatch in an attempt to see what I could make with this fabric, as I haaad to have… Read More »
