ok so maybe that was more of a 70's thing, I don't really know. Then again, maybe this is more of a 70's bodice with a 50's skirt... but that averages out to be 60 so either way I'ma call it good for this week's sew weekly challenge.
This dress has been 90 % done for months.…Continue

I suppose I am stretching the rules a bit at first glance with my submission for the "Wardrobe Staple: Shirt Challenge". However, my husband made the point that while shirts are not blouses, perhaps all blouses are shirts. Despite this confusion, at least this IS my new dressy 'wardrobe staple' and and I am VERY proud of how my blouse turned out. I love to wear this!!!…Continue
These two projects for the week of the 'Apron Challenge' have certainly been all about time. My first creation is a vintage half apron, found at an antique mall back in 2005 or 2007. I bought it with the intention of turning it into a refashioned full apron, and only recently have I completed my goal after all those years. My second project is a mini apron, made with the leftover scraps from refashioned my vintage half apron. The matching mini apron was completed in exactly 2 1/2…Continue

Well, I have dozens of aprons so my husband couldn't figure out why in the world I was making another one - but it was for the apron challenge, of course! I went through my huge box of patterns,…Continue

When I think of Halloween, either costumes or the colors orange and black come to mind. Since I'm the type that rather likes to go historically themed for this holiday, and since we already had something to wear, my Halloween Challenge submission is a retro/vintage Butterick dress which I actually made in August. I put it together just in time for my Birthday, and, by happenstance, my dress matched perfectly with a scarf (a b-day present from my parents that was "picked out" by our…Continue

Believe it or not, I talked him out of the race car as part of the costume, too.
Pattern: traced off a pair of Carter's footie jammies. There's even a crotch gusset, which was not as fun as I had hoped.
Notions: 2 yards total of unbleached, dark green, and bright yellow cotton broadcloth,…Continue

Finally, I have managed to get photos up of a dress I made for the Blue weekly challenge. I actually made it during the week of the challenge but didn't have a camera to shoot it with. My partner bought himself a new camera which is amazing so now I have some great shots of it.
