The late 40s are my favorite period and I’ve made yet another version of my favorite late 40s pattern-Simplicity 2851!

I made it up in a great vintage floral fabric that I got from a local sewing shop.

This is my first time making this pattern up in a print and it looks fabulous!

This makes the fourth time I’ve sewn up this pattern! And I’m sure I could make four more! Do you have a favorite pattern you love to make again and again?

More photos and construction notes over on the blog.

This year was my husband and my 5th wedding anniversary and we decided to do a vintage vow renewal ceremony on the beach!

I decided to make myself a vintage wedding dress! I decided on this late 40s pattern:

Especially after I found it’s vintage doppelganger!

As you can see, my version of white cotton lawn turned out quite like the original!

It was such a wonderful event! I was so bummed that I got married before I discovered vintage so this was my do over dress.

I shared a ridiculous number of photos from the day over on my blog. General vow renewal shots are here and my dress diary is here.

I love vintage playsuits, especially ones with qwirky novelty prints!

So I made up this playsuit in this darling crab print!

It’s a mish-mash of a 40s skirt, a 30s bolero and a modern blouse.

And it was perfect for my recent trip to Florida! :D

Do you love playsuits? I’ve got more photos over on my blog.
