A 1940s Hawaiian Wrap Dress For My Wedding Anniversary
When I found this stunning heliconia flower viscose (or rayon) fabric in a Hawaiian shop I didn't know yet what I was going to make. I just had to have it, and - it was on sale! I loved it even more in person, even though I usually try to avoid white and na...

The Victory Rag
You are right. I did write "rag". It was supposed to be blouse, but it's rather a rag. It's not the pattern or my sewing skills. It's the fabric. I was drooling over this gorgeous design on Spoonflower since many months. When I finally got the fabric, I was...

Banned Apparel Cowgirl Border Skirt & Gertie's Wrap Top
I really dislike most reproduction labels, and I seldom came across a reproduced vintage style garment that offered a nice design, proper workmanship and good material quality. I do own a few (2 to be precise) items that stand out: a gorgeous "Fleur" dress ...

Smooth Sailing Garden Girl Bluse
I realise I haven't been around here since months. It was a personally very busy and straining time, and my sewing motivation suffered a lot. Now spring is here and also my mood for sewing is back again. As much as I was cursing during my last attempt to ma...

Frida's Garden - My Birthday Skirt
It is quite normal for me that I get behind my schedule and planned things remain UFOs for quite some time. And sometimes I am so surprised to finish projects in time, that I forget to blog about them. And today - tadaaa - voilà, my finished "Happy Belated ...

1940's Style Wrap Dress
I had a purchased wrap dress by a repro brand, and I love it so much. For a long time I tried to find a similar pattern, but wrap dress patterns from the 40s are not easy to find. So I tried to make something like a copy of that dress. Which was not easy, a...

1940's Style Knit Wrap Dress
Ever since I am sewing reproduction vintage clothing, I was wondering if all those astonishing designs could also be made with lightweight knit fabrics, such as jersey. Especially many of the 1940's patterns are suitable for woven rayon fabrics (or even req...

Vintage Inspired Pierrot Child's Costume
Yesterday in the late morning I realized with panic that the next day my son will have a carnival party at his kindergarten. More than a year ago I have made a bat or vampire costume for Halloween that still fit him, but would be far too warm to be worn ind...

Sew What You Got - Sewing Challenge
Each year I have the same resolution - sew more, sew from what I got (patterns, materials) to reduce my stash. Currently, sewing is almost impossible for me, as I have no sewing room. I had one. Now it's stuffed with boxes and clutter I don't know where to ...
