Paco Peralta Tunic Vogue 1550

I’m always a bit hesitant making patterns that are voluminous but this Paco Peralta Tunic, Vogue 1550, is a stunner!  I wanted something sheer and lightweight for summer and this fits the bill perfectly.  I’ve been wearing this with leggings quite a bit.  It’s artsy…

Disneybound 2017!

As soon as I found out we were going to Disney World this Spring I was planning out what I’d make for Amelie. There’s no better excuse for new princess clothes! Our trip was this past April and, as luck would have it, coincided with Amelie’s 6th…

Coral Linen Vintage Vogue V9105

I’ve been slowly working on this gorgeous Vintage Vogue dress V9105, a 1954 Original, for the last month or so.  This was part of my Spring sewing plans for casual house dresses.  While this didn’t turn out exactly how I envisioned- it’s much dressier then intended- I…
