skirt

I adore rayon! It’s the fabric I most wish would come back into modern fashion. I’m always on the hunt for rayon with a great retro style print and I fell in love with this divine polka dot yardage. It’s the size of the print and the color that make this perfect for late 30s/early [...]

Hello! I stalk this site every day, so I thought it was only proper for me to stop stalking and start talking! I adore everything vintage and I recently began sewing clothes for me and my two young daughters. For myself, I started with a very simple a-line-ish skirt from a New Look pattern. I’ve [...]
