    Dsc02477_listing

    I love all of the Colette Patterns!!!!!!! I made this using thrifted fabrics. The floral is a cotton gauze and the shell fabric is some sort of linen blend. This dress was challenging, but oh so wo…

    Cynthia Froman commented on the project 1950's Seersucker Shorts

    I got this pattern at Josephine’s Dry Goods downtown. I think the box of vintage patterns I found them in was a one time fluke though. I really recommend you check out the Knitten Kitten for vintag…

    Cynthia Froman commented on the project Tie-Dye Surprise

    It doesn’t pull at all. I pinched out all of the ease and my boobs hold it up for the most part. I didn’t add any of the boning called for in the pattern instructions.

    Cynthia Froman commented on the project Tie-Dye Surprise

    Yes, just the sides are gathered, with a smooth front and back. The bodice is a basic princess seamed, sweetheart neckline type, you tie the straps around the drape over the bust.
