    I would have half the gathers if I had another go, or at least had the gathers only at the front. :D

    I made this up for my birthday, which happened to be on Friday the 13th. This dress wasn’t anything but lucky. I had a great summer day in the city in the dress and lots of compliments. I also got …

    Mod2_listing

    I’ve always fawned over Yves St. Laurent’s dress based off of Piet Mondrian’s color blocking. A year ago I found this double knit fabric on ebay, and while it’s not exactly alike, it pretty much re…

    Untitled-4_copy_listing

    I was really inspired after reading another blogger’s great post about 1940’s blouses. I set off to make my own. It’s made with pink polished cotton, but hindsight it wasn’t the best material to us…

    I used Cynthia Rowley’s 2578 pattern and an old 1970s bedsheet I got from the Salvation Army for .99 cents. I’m sort of in a 70s vibe right now so I’d thought I would try out one of my contemporary…

    Don’t have a lot of cash? Or time? Get one of your boyfriend’s or father’s old shirts, make sure it’s not one of his favorites (or do if it belongs to your ex-boyfriend or annoying brother) and mak…

    So, everything is unpacked and I’m back to work. I can officially call it summer. However, most of my peers won’t call it summer until Memorial Day. What a perfect time to start on some cotton, flo…

    I LOVE this dress! So beautiful! Did you happen to use this pattern’s yardage? I want to make this pattern, and of course, have a perfect material less than 4 yards.
