Travel Planning- Greece

It’s almost time for our big family vacation to Greece! Read on to find out everything I’m sewing for my travel capsule wardrobe and my packing plans for this trip of a lifetime!

Rayon Quartz Dobby Skirt- Vogue Designer Original 2129

Today I’m sharing what once was a Belinda Bellville dress and is now a much more wearable-and comfortable- elastic waist skirt. I love vintage patterns and lucked out finding this Vogue Designer Original Belinda Bellville design very close to my size, in a 16. I love this so much now that it’s been refashioned! And I really like the combo I’m wearing in the images here. This is …

Betty Jackson Hooded Pullover – Vogue 2620

I lucked out and it got chilly this morning(54 degrees F) so I was able to take some pics of my newest make- and my last make of winter- Vogue Designer Originals 2620 Betsy Jackson Hooded Pullover! On my birthday I told my husband what I really needed for winter was a cozy house sweater like the one I had when we were first married. He told me …

Teal Birthday Dress- Vintage Vogue 7519

I made quite a bit this last year, especially considering I was out of commission for so long with my ankle injury. Tomorrow is my one year mark from my ankle fracture which really disrupted and changed my goals this year! I blogged about 21 makes and sewed up quite a …

Fall/Winter Wardrobe Planning 2021

I love planning out my wardrobe makes for the season! I’m extra excited for fall sewing now that the temps have dropped a bit and I have so much fabric in my stash from last year. With my ankle fracture I was out of commission for quite a few months and never got to use all the beautiful wintery fabrics I got for Christmas last year. I can’t …

Vintage Beach Set, Vogue 5257 Bikini Top and McCalls 6634 Short

Last week I shared my favorite make of the year, my embroidered seahorse beach jacket. If you haven’t seen that post be sure to go back and read it! Here’s the bikini and short I made to coordinate with that look. I used two different vintage patterns to make this look, a Vogue (5257) bikini from 1961 and a flared bias cut short from 1979, McCall’s 6634. I …
