I recently completed the Va-Voom Vintage bullet bra sew-along! This was my first sew along and I loved it.  A bra was a great thing to start off with and Brittany’s pattern and instructions were great. I was really inspired by her collection of vintage bullet bras as well.

My first sew-along.

I added some faggoting stitch, a keyhole opening in the bridge, and some modern lingerie elastics and closure. Be aware, this girl is pointy!

I have been lurking for a while checking out everyone’s great vintage style creations. I am finally posting adding my own! This is a modern Butterick pattern (5846) with a retro flair.

 I sewed  almost the entire dress on my “new to me” 1948 Singer Featherweight.  I cheated and used my modern Singer for the button holes.  I was in a hurry to wear the dress and didn’t want to fiddle with the Featherweight’s button hole attachment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More pictures and information on my blog.  Both the machine and the fabric were gifts from my Mum. what can I say… She knows what I like!
