Fresh off the sewing machine is a restyled Navy uniform top.  I found this at the local thrift and it’s riddled with moth holes.  I didn’t want to toss it away so decided to do a make-over.  I split the center front, added a zipper and did a bit of embellishing.  More details at my blog.

I just couldn’t let this fantastic aqua, floral border print go the way of most border prints (the ever-popular gathered skirt), so I opted for capris and a tie-front top.   Wore it to a fabulous car show downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the historic Pabst Brewing grounds.  More details on the outfit on my blog.

Even though it’s not exactly Spring yet here in Wisconsin, I’m soaking up sun whenever I can find it!  Last weekend my husband was kind enough to snap a few shots of my new Decades of Style 1930s Sweetheart Overalls (using his 1951 Oshkosh Truck as a most appropriate prop).  More details and pics at my blog.

Phew!  At 10:30pm Saturday night, I sewed the last snap onto my Easter dress!  Nothing like a deadline to keep your butt in gear!  For myself, a 1950s full-skirted dress in a luscious silk/linen blend using Butterick 7065.
