About Me

My Photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

One Easter Dress Down making it another Vintage Dress done

I have finished little girl's dress, except for a sash, which I need to go in Friday to town for groceries and will get more purple broadcloth at Hancocks. It was a mail order vintage pattern, big pinafore style ruffles set into princess seams. Princess seams for a little princess. I will photograph all later. On to the older girl's dress, which is still in partial pieces - bodice is about done, skirt not yet. She will also need more of the purple for her sash. Bias binding ate up most of what I had bought. Remember the aqua floral I posted earlier. That's the main fabric. As far as mine, no further progress and I was contemplating another that was in progress out of a dusty darker blue linen blend. It's a mix of my Christmas bodice (vintage) and a flared knee length skirt from another vintage pattern. We will see...

I bet it's adorable! What size girls patterns are you using? I have a few vintage girls patterns that I have no use for.
