    P1020800_listing

    The skirt is rated for intermediate sewers but I found it very simple to put together and managed to complete it in an evening. The fit is very snug but the back detail is amazing! Love it!

    misteebelle commented on the project 40s Follow the Lines dress

    Believe it or not, the stripes actually helped in making this dress. One of the envelope illustrations is made in a striped fabric, and without having the instructions, I just ‘followed the lines’….

    Thanks everyone for the positive comments! This dress sat unfinished for quite some time but I’m glad I stuck with it. If anyone plans on making this one, the neckline is a bit tricky. I ended up t…

    P1010231_listing

    Simplicity 4139 blouse – I chose view 1 for its sexy deep V neckline; the long, floaty sleeves; and, more importantly, it has only one button. My god I hate buttonholes! The fabric is something I…

    This dress is one of my favourites! It’s made from Vogue 5659, undated but circa 1940s and, as promised, it was easy to make. The fabric was something I had in my stash, grape & white Koshibo (?) …
