Hiii!

Check out this latest creation – I am SO pleased with it!!

A few details:

Pattern: Butterick 3989 – from early to mid 40′s I think. From the amazing Evadress Patterns
Fabric: Awesome tropical print rayon WITH PINEAPPLES from eBay. This isn’t vintage as the selvedge mentions “Hoffman Internation Fabrics 2001″. How COOL is it!? I have another piece which has Plumerias and palm trees on it!

Hi All

It’s been a while since I posted here.

I made this dress just the other week. A few details:

Pattern: Simplicity 3835 from the 40′s – early in the decade I think, but can’t be sure.
Fabric: Pastel green sheer with white floral flocking – possibly nylon? New Japanese made fabric bought from one of the little shops on Sydney Rd Brunswick.
Notions: A heap of snaps and 3 tiny hook & eyes.
Cost: About $13 – $5 p/m for the fabric – I used just about 2m. Snaps were probably about $3 – they’re so expensive here and I use heaps of them. Need to buy them in bulk from somewhere!

Hi Everyone!
I made this quick and easy rockabilly 50′s shirt.

SO easy – no joke – No instructions, no worries – comes together in a couple of hours. Easy to adjust to fit others. And the variations are endless.

This one is in a navy floral poly cotton.

I also made one for a friend (since it is her pattern)!

Hi Everyone!

I was another lucky soul who got to test the Sewaholic Cambie dresses. A few pics:

I made the A-line version to make something office appropriate. I used what feels like a wool/poly blend that is of medium weight with a nice hand. It’s lined with gray cotton voile and I used satin (probably poly) to make the straps. It helps break up the tiny houndstooth pattern of my main fabric don’t you think?

It’s not vintage – but definitely vintage inspired!
