    Thanks! Yes, the forties was a fabulous decade for style. Would love to see more people dressing that way.

    Yes, this style of dress in a light weight cotton works perfect for summer. I’d like to make a non-maternity version in the future.

    This is a dress I made from a vintage maternity pattern (Simplicity 4635). Some of these pictures actually make the dress look a bit more flattering than the way it looks in real life. Maternity …

    Thank you! It’s hard to believe that disguising a mistake can be inspiring – but I think everyone who sews comes across at least one moment where they think they’ve ruined something ;)

    aluckmann commented on the project Linen Outfit for Poland :)

    Looks fabulous! The jacket and skirt go so well with the blouse you made as well, what a great outfit. I keep looking at the linen whenI go fabric shopping, but have yet to pick some up. I may n…

    Thank you! I actually am liking the braiding enough that I might use it “on purpose” with another shirt in the future ;)

    The braiding was born out of necessity, but it makes me really happy with how the shirt turned out. Thanks for the compliments :)

    Someone once told me necessity is the mother of invention (or creativity) – sure does apply in this case!

    Thank you Hannnah! I have been wearing it a ton, so I’m glad I was able to salvage it.

    I was originally planning to sew up another Megan Nielsen Ruched Maternity Top, but I decided that there were a few things about my first one that I would prefer to change. Namely, the shoulders w…

    aluckmann commented on the project Hello Gorgeous

    I have always been a fan of navy, it’s my favorite “neutral” color. The collar is part of what drew me to the pattern; there are lots of wrap style dresses for maternity, but this is the only one …

    Oh thank you so much! I think I would sew with knits more often if the cutting process wasn’t so time consuming, at least the sewing part is always faster.

    This is Butterick 5860, which is the perfect maternity dress. I made this up just in time for Easter, and have already worn it three times! While cutting out the large pieces on grain was a bit o…

    aluckmann commented on the project Ukrainian Embroidered Linen Crop Top and Skirt for Easter

    I love how you have incorporated your Ukrainian history into your sewing. It inspires me, because I have been wanting to do the same since I started sewing. My Baba and Dido were both born and ra…
