Chambray Vintage Vogue Shirt 8447

As soon as I put this on my husband asked if I was going to watch some Friends reruns! This shirt is very 90’s and was such fun to make. I’ve been on a blouse kick lately trying to round out my handmade wardrobe. One thing I’m sorely missing is dress shirts. I feel like I’m a much better seamstress now so time to branch out a bit. …

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 …

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 …

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 really love it! I always love a dress you can twirl in! The seam lines and side buttons were what drew me to …

Vintage Vogue V8788 Wrap Dress in Linen

Here’s my first dress for Spring!  A lovely wrap dress in a beautiful teal colored linen, Vintage Vogue V8788 from 1954. We are FINALLY moved into our new home in Plantation and I can get back to sewing!  Not having time to sew for basically the last month has been so much harder than I thought it would be.  Especially with so much sewing planned for Spring that I’ve …

Vintage Vogue Knit Dress + Cochineal Dyeing

A new organic knit dress, lots of historical reading and my first try at dyeing with Cochineal. It’s been a great week! I’ve been so psyched to work with cochineal after I received my dye from Botanical Colors. I’ve been reading A Perfect Red by Amy Butler Greenfield which is all about Cochineal and its trade in the New World, so intriguing.  The dye itself comes from the parasitic female insect that …

Vintage Vogue Blooming Dress & Jacket

I fell for and bought this fabric ages ago from Marcy Tilton but couldn’t decide what I wanted to make with this beautiful print.  My plan originally was to  make a two piece co-ords set, maybe pants and a jacket, to sew along with Ada’s Two-Piece Setacular.  But with all the distractions of the start of school, sick kids and a death in the family everything got backtracked in my sewing queue.   After …
