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 …

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 …

Natural Dyeing: Lac

This past weekend the weather was perfect, sunny and breezy, so I broke out the dye pot and did some fun natural dyeing! I had a bunch of pieces waiting for the dye pot that I had planned on dyeing back over the winter holidays. Unfortunately that all got put on hold with my injury. Now that I’m back to almost normal I’m excited to get back to …

Vintage Butterick 4659 Skirt and Striped Tee

This is my second outfit made using Vintage Butterick 4659. Last week I shared my awesome indigo dyed pants and this week I’m sharing the wrap skirt and tee. I just love this skirt pattern. It’s so comfortable, the pockets are nice and roomy and the wrap offers full coverage so you can move with ease. I used this gorgeous slub texture linen blend in sea glass from …

Vintage Issey Miyake V2332 Skirt and Madalynne for Simplicity 8435 Bodysuit

My Fall/ Winter Wardrobe is really starting to shape up. This is the first year I have a great selection of pieces that mix and match together. I’ve felt so stylish wearing my handmade makes the past few weeks. We’ve finally gotten a bit of cooler weather with some lovely ocean breezes. Hardly have to have the AC on at all! A few months ago my friend Judy …

Fiona Bodice + Utu Skirt

What do you do when all you have is a square of beautifully embroidered linen? Piece it into a gorgeous little crop top! I was gifted with a selection of upholstery samples at our last ASG annual meeting and have been holding on/ hoarding them until I could find the perfect use. The Fiona dress seemed like a great match as the bodice is made of quite a …

Coral Linen Skirt Refashion

You may remember this Coral Linen Vintage Dress I made back in April.  It’s Vintage Vogue V9105, a 1954 Original.   It’s really very lovely but  I NEVER wore it.  I always felt like I was wearing costume.  Time for a change.  Summer is always the perfect time for me to work on refashions. Before: After:   My solution- hack it up into a wrap skirt.  I cut it off just above the natural waist first.  The original …
