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 All!

A brand new sewing project is up on my blog. Heck, I can even show you the insides I’m that pleased with it.

The pattern is from 1946 and I just love Mccall’s designs from that era!
