    missjanee added the project called 1960s Linen Labor Day Dress
    Img_0224_copy_listing

    I had this fabric in my stash for a LONG time. I knew I wanted to use it with this vintage butterick pattern. I grabbed a yard of seersucker to make my own bow and bias tape. I was out of white zip…

    missjanee commented on the project Vintage Vogue 8812

    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 …

    A Beautiful black double knit in a simple, mod style designed by Larry Aldrich. I photoshoped with high saturation in these photos so you can see the detail, so the color might look a little dull. …

    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…

    missjanee added the project called Cynthia Rowley 1970s Maxi Dress
    Maxi4_listing

    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…

    missjanee added the project called Recycle Men's Shirt into Summer Blouse
    Recycle3_listing

    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…
