Miss Crayola Creepy

For Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men Challenge I sewed up this Elisalex dress in a canvas like woven fabric I bought from Mood. While the fabric and pattern are not vintage, I think that the combination of the two gives a look that Megan Draper would possibly wear during this season of Mad Men. Paired with my [...]


Hello! My first make of the year is a shift dress from the new Burdastyle book, Sewing Vintage Modern. It was a quick dress to make as there are only four pattern pieces and the directions are very straight forward. I simplified the pattern even more by omitting the zipper which saved time. The fabric is [...]

Hello! This weekend I finished making my first shirt. I used the pattern pictured above and chose View 2. I have actually had the pattern for a while, but the reason that it took me so long to make was because I was procrastinating on putting in an invisible zipper. And it turned out to [...]


Hello everyone! I am new to the blog and new to sewing as well. My husband got me a sewing machine around a year and a half ago and now I’m hooked. After reading this blog it makes me want to sew and make beautiful clothes like all of you. Can anyone recommend any beginner [...]
