Hi there!

I love historical and vintage fashion and love creating clothing from the past. When I'm not sewing for myself I love to be creative in other ways, watch old movies, and spend time with my husband our two kitties.

I'm with the rest of the gang…man, if you just made that picture black and white it would look like it was snapped in 1945! The pouffy shorts intrigue me. At first I thought it was a bubble skirt!
