I just finished making a late-60′s playdress with tunic, shorts, and some super-wide pants to wear as a coverup. I’m going to be wearing this to a retro pool party later this month. This is my first foray into 60′s clothing, and I must say, I am quite hooked! It was easy and fun to make, and I am so in love with the crazy prints of this era. If you’d like, you can read more about it on my blog, Festive Attyre. Thanks!
I just finished a mid-1930′s dress made from an Anne Adams pattern, and I wore it to a retro ice-cream social this weekend. This was such a fun (and easy!) dress to make. I definitely need more 30′s stuff now! If you’d like, you can read more about it on my blog, Festive Attyre.
A great locally owned fabric store called Fabrique has hosted a remnant challenge here in Dallas for the last 2 years. This year, I made a mock wrap skirt for their contest using one of my vintage patterns from 1977. I made my skirt out of ultrasuede and decorated it with a cutwork design inspired by Mexican papel picado banners. I think the simple shape of the skirt worked really well for showing off the design.

I whipped up a quick little 40′s blouse with a patriotic color scheme for a 4th of July party this weekend. If you’d like, you can read more about it on my blog. Thanks, and happy 4th!
