    Adulting in Lakeside Pajamas Posted on July 19, 2016

    As I’m now considered an ‘Adult’ aka over 30 years old (that’s an adulty age yeah??),  I feel like I’m supposed to have actual sleep-wear in my wardrobe.  Adults have that right??  But sewing pajamas that no one will ever see besides my husband, hasn’t been at the top of my sewing list…. until now….

  • Floral Molyneux Dress
    Floral Molyneux Dress Posted on July 14, 2016

    As soon as I saw this Molyneux (Vogue Paris Orig 1841) dress pattern on etsy, I couldn’t get it in my hot little hands fast enough.  I knew it would be the perfect addition for my summer wardrobe as well as work for one of my Vintage Pattern Pledges for July. While I’m more of… Read More »

    A Summery Outfit Posted on July 12, 2016

    I love sewing garments for summer so much more so than winter, I find.  While I love wool there’s just something to be said for easy, breezy garments. First of all – Rayon!  I am smitten with you, rayon.  Let’s just take a second and hear me admit out loud that this is the first time… Read More »

  • Gabriola Skirt
    Gabriola Skirt: It’s lovely but… Posted on June 29, 2016

    Every spring I get on a maxi skirt kick.  I’m not sure why, but every spring I find myself hunting for the perfect long skirt pattern to make up.  This spring was no exception. I actually started on this skirt pattern late last fall and the fit wasn’t quite right.  I set it aside while… Read More »

  • Novelty M6696
    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 »
