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 …

Universal Orlando Vacation Makes!

We’re just back from a whirlwind family reunion vacation at Universal Orlando!  Perfect family trip plus lots of new makes!  Off season- so hardly any waiting in lines, relatively cool weather *for Florida in September* and a roomy Air bnb home to relax in with all the family. The kids were at the prefect age too for our first visit to Universal.  Both tall enough for most rides …

Selvedge Denim Buttonfly Jeans Vogue V8774

It’s finally time to start sewing for fall here in FL! The last few days have been breezy and cool after weeks of heat. First up- a simple pair of selvedge denim buttonfly jeans using a modified version of Vogue V8774. I wanted something classic in a dark wash with a straight leg. Unadorned since my other two pairs of blue jeans are both patched and embroidered. I …

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 and elegant but still comfortable out playing with the kids or out for the weekend. I’m so thrilled with how this turned out-especially …

Pacific Grove Vogue V8871

Can you tell how much I love this fabric!  This is dress #2 in Pacific Grove, a gorgeous landscape knit from Marcy Tilton.   After making my V Neck dress I had just enough fabric leftover to whip up this little dress.  It’s V8871, Very Easy Vogue, that I picked up during the last pattern sale to add to my ever-growing stash. I love the princess seams and curved side pieces-they’re …

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 …

3 Patterns, 3 Months!

This morning was our Sunday ritual of yummy breakfast (homemade waffles & smoothies) followed by a visit to my husband’s folks.  I think we’re one of the rare lucky couples who love each other’s parents and really all get along. Our parents live only a few minutes from each other and get along fabulously too!  It’s so nice, especially with kids, to have so much family here.  Both …
