Vintage Jackpot and Another Completed Dress :)

June 20, 2014


Whoa! I know I just posted yesterday about finishing a dress but the past week has been a very productive one for me and I was able to complete a project that I had gotten half-way through and just wasn’t able to finish at the time! This dress is made out of a wonderful blue cotton from Vintage Vogue V8875 🙂 This was my first time working with a Vintage Vogue repro pattern and while it presented some interesting challenges and techniques I hadn’t tried before I must say I am pleased with the result!                                                    


I also wanted to share a few vintage treasures that I recently acquired! A close friends grandmother passed away and she was left with boxes of old sewing things like patterns, notions, and fabric. When she asked if there was anything I would like since she wanted to see it go to someone who would get use out of it I of course said yes! I came home with boxes of stuff and I thought you’d like to see some of it 🙂 Feel free to swing by my blog frillz24.blogspot.com for more pictures and details!
  1. Your dress looks great and I love the shade of blue.
    I’d LOVE to receive goodies like you have. You are one lucky lady!

  2. Fantastic dresses, love them all. It is so good to see women in dresses once again, they are so comfortable and so beautiful. Plus I know I feel more beautiful in a dress than in anything else. Each of your patterns I wish I could have them also, love each and everyone of them. Love your site keep them coming.

  3. Can you please help?! I’m making this dress but am falling at the first hurdle with the side panels of the front bodice!
