‘Tis the season (in Wisconsin anyways) to dig through those piles of wool yardage. Using two Hollywood Patterns (1585 and 1898) from the late 1940s, I just finished up a matching skirt and tie-front top. Okay, so the top won’t keep me very warm, but being a red and green plaid, this skirt will work all winter. I also sewed up an unlined jacket to layer over my sweaters. Being a shepherdess by trade, I wear as much wool as I can! Read more at my blog.

Shepherdess, retro-housewife, mother, seamstress... but labels can be deceiving. I also play the sax, butcher chickens and sing in the church choir. I raise sheep and bale hay. I sew from Grandma's patterns and drive a 1950 Ford Shoebox. Life at the Willow Homestead is retro right down to the 1947 Frigidaire!
