- 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!

A long time and President's Day
I haven't sewn a lot last year or so. One thing I have done is a vintage dress for youngest child to be Jackie Kennedy in a president's day project. I used Vintage Simplicity 5904 from the mid 60's. A line sheath with side pleats and a three quarter sleeved jacket. I made it all the more difficult by lining the dress and jacket, but I ended the dress lining above pleated area. Her face is cropped out, but she had the sweetest yellow vintage hat and the gloves. All was well for her.
