Vintage Simplicity 5688 Skirt with Embroidered Pockets and Retro Stripe Rib Turtleneck

I’m so happy to finally share this make, my vintage Simplicity 5688 Linen Skirt with embroidered curve pockets! I wore this for Thanksgiving and got so many compliments. My daughter wore a striped rib knit turtleneck too, so we were almost matching! There’s a fantastic banyan tree with a built in swing next to the lake in our community where my daughter loves to play. She was happy …

Mix and Match Painted Floral Two Piece Set

I love sewing up matching sets! This double make is one of my faves, a lightweight midi skirt with a nice wide waistband and a simple sleeveless blouse. Both finished with matching buttons up the front. The bold floral really makes the look! I had to have this painted crinkle cotton floral as soon as I saw it! This is another fabulous floral from Blackbird Fabrics, check out …

Haslam 1929 Yellow Floral Slip

I’m back today with one of my favorite summer makes, this 1929 Haslam drafted slip from Book of Draftings #6 in a sweet yellow floral print. I couldn’t resist this lemon yellow japanese cotton print and bought up 3 yds from Blackbird way back in March. I also used this fabric for my vintage McCall’s 6634 Blouse. It’s really not the best color on me but I just …

Yellow Floral Vintage McCall’s 6634 Blouse

I’m always on the lookout for interesting vintage sewing patterns and excitedly stumbled across this 80’s style Blouse with a gathered front yoke. This first version is my very wearable muslin in a leafy floral japanese lawn in a shade of yellow I don’t normally wear but was instantly drawn to. The fabric is crisp but very lightweight which makes it perfect for the light gathering on this …

Naturally Dyed Robe and Bias Slip

Over the summer I did quite a bit of dyeing using indigo, avocados as well as some floral bundles. That part was easy but figuring out what I want to make with those is always harder. The color was so subtle on both, and not in my usual color palette. The softer colors seemed perfect for loungewear especially while I’m at home all the time. Perfect simple basics …

Floral Floor Pillows

This is my best scrap buster project yet! I had just a bit of leftover denim from my culottes and two large matching upholstery samples (with a small bit of piecing) for two large floor pillows for my new yoga room/hallway. Bonus- they’re filled with all my fabric scraps from the last year that I’ve been collecting and cutting up into small pieces. I’m really excited to show …

Deer & Doe Centaurée Dress

Last month at our ASG meeting my friend Judy gave me a bunch of fabric from her stash to have fun with. Included in the batch were these beautiful floral upholstery sample squares. I went through my patterns to see what I could make that had smaller pieces. The pieced bodice of the Centaurée dress was a perfect match. A sweet little sundress to get me through the …
