This is my great grandmother's ironing board... Another case of "they don't make 'em like they used to!". It's the sturdiest ironing board I've ever had! In going through stuff to move, we are getting rid of both our aluminum ironing boards in favor of this one. . . . . .

Love this dress 💕✂️👏#Repost @katieofdoom with @get_repost

When your love invites you out for an evening walk in the park 💘 
Wearing my me made late 1930s style dress. It fits so well and moved so nicely in the breeze. I felt like a total qt and that's how clothing is supposed to make you feel!

It's been a few months since I posted the work-in-progress picture, so here's a pic of my finished #charmpatterns #lamourdress by @gertie18
I made this with a #vintage sari, and changed the skirt to be box pleated and full-length since the print wouldn't work in a circle skirt. I also made a belt out of the sari trim, and added in a headband for good measure.
I have no idea when I'd actually wear it, but I am really loving this dress!

Jumpsuits may be my new found love after frolicking around in my beach pajamas @jazzagelawnparty . Mine are made from vintage printed cotton that gave me a dazzle camouflage vibe. I also made my hat.

A rather productive evening watching Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and sewing eyelets. They are all complete so I can start sewing the rest together tomorrow.

I call this one Paper Clips, but it has no markings on selvedges. 1970s I'm guessing. Cotton fabric size 
3 m x 122 cm. Has a printing flaw repeated 3 times each 63 cm apart as per photo.

Just finished the mock up. I’m pretty happy with the shape so I’m gonna start working on the actual fabric tomorrow - I’m thinking of adding some laces and trims around the hemline. This is not necessarily a Lolita piece because I’m making this for myself, but still it’s going to look classical!
.
トワルが終わりました。形は良さそうなので明日から製作に取り掛かります。あくまでも自分用なのでロリータ要素はないですが、クラシカル感は持たせたかったのでこの丈に。レースやブレードで装飾したいなと思っています。

Yeah nah. Works better as a two piece (it’s supposed to have an elastic waist). Time to unpick #sewing #diy #vintagesewing

Excited to start making this 1930’s dress from #vintagepatternlendinglibrary !  Have my pdf pattern all taped together and cutout! This Fabric has a lovely drape and I thought the print had a 30’s feel to it!  #vintagesewing #vintagesewingpatterns #threaddenfollies

WISHES & WANTS
.................................................................
Where do you want to go?
Where no sewist has gone before: The very bottom of her fabric stash.
.
What do you want to make?
Quite simply, this same dress out of all these fabrics.
.
My wish?
That I’ll actually get through this stack of fabric before I get bored of using the same pattern. I’m hoping that limitation will breed creativity. Most importantly, I want this project to be a way teach some pattern hacks and sewing techniques by sharing this process on my blog.
.
I hope you’ll follow along. The journey begins next week.
.
Thank you, @shopmakethislook  @wearinghistory @iliveinmylab!! It’s been a fun week sharing and seeing what other #sewists are up to!

I can't believe it's the end of #thevintagesewingchallenge! It's been a great little challenge--not to long for me to keep up with, great prompts, and the discoveries of so many other sewers and seamstresses. Such a fantastic idea from @shopmakethislook, @wearinghistory, and @iliveinmylab. Thank you all for organizing this! 
Wishes and want is a big one for me. There are so many of them. Too many. I feel like my imagination and desire for the amount I wish I could create is too much sometimes. I'm trying this year to only do the wonderful projects--the ones that make me truly excited and the ones I know I'll make use of a lot. It's going to be an odd mix of the everyday and the wildly impractical, but it's going to be fun. •

I’m supposed to be sewing for #costumecollege but I’m debating sewing myself this @gertie18 top instead.  Because... priorities.
Fabric bought ages ago in downtown Los Angeles.
Why, yes! I DO have these patterns available in my shop!

Thank you to @iliveinmylab @wearinghistory and @shopmakethislook for hosting #thevintagesewingchallenge this week. It’s my first ever Instagram sewing challenge I have participated in and I have had so much fun!

The last post of this challenge is about wishes and wants and the reason I did this challenge is because I wanted to find my passion for sewing again. My boyfriend went to an event earlier this year without me and family members he hadn’t seen in a long time were asking him about me. They asked him what kind of hobbies I had and he came home and said, “I didn’t know what to tell them! You love dance, but dance is one of your jobs. So is graphic design and photography. You don’t have any hobbies anymore that aren’t related to your work.” For some reason this statement has been on repeat in my mind for months, “What are my hobbies? Do I really have nothing outside of work?” So I’ve been trying to get back into things I used to love doing in my free time. I want and wish to get my sewing skills back to what they used to be. I want them to stay fresh in my mind. They have already gotten rusty and I don’t want to lose them even more. So thanks to this challenge, I have felt more motivation to sew and create than I have in years. Here’s to hoping I finally sew through *some* of my piles of fabrics and patterns I have collected over the years. 🤞🏻🤓 #vintagepatterns #antiquecollection #sewing #isew #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #vintage #vintagesewing #hobbies #afterlight #vsco

Last day of #thevintagesewingchallenge and I'm so glad I was able to participate, thank you so much @iliveinmylab @wearinghistory and @shopmakethislook for putting on this fab event! 
My wish is for the patience and understanding that I'm still new to this, and that in time what seems hard (understanding patterns and new terms) will come without thinking.  I want more time to sew and perhaps for more sweet fabric finds at my favorite thrift shops!  #vintagesewing #happywithlife #asdmom #isew #thehopelessemerald

It was a great day for this up until about mid afternoon when the air was so thick and muggy I just couldn't stand it anymore. It wasn't long after that a thunderstorm rolled in and everything had to go back inside! 😊💕✂️

My latest creation is this olive green 1940s inspired blouse! It’s a pattern hack based on #simplicity1692 , I exchanged the side zip for a button placket down the back which I think gives a lovely touch to the design. The bishop sleeves are a new style for me but I really like them ☺️ This fabric is thrifted and I’m not actually sure what type of fabric it is, but it’s similar to a crepe with a sheen to it that gives a light gold reflect. I love the fit of this pattern and didn’t have to make many adjustments. I do have a larger bust and this fit me well with no alterations. I did find the cuffs were way to big for me but my wrists are pretty little so that’s common for me. Already planning another one with different sleeves 😄 #vintagesewing #1940shair #1940sstyle #vintagestyle #memade #sewing #simplicitypatterns #sewinghacks #1940sblouse #vintage #landgirl

The bishop sleeves are a new style for me but I really like them ☺️ This fabric is thrifted and I’m not actually sure what type of fabric it is, but it’s similar to a crepe with a sheen to it that gives a light gold reflect. I love the fit of this pattern and didn’t have to make many adjustments. I do have a larger bust and this fit me well with no alterations. I did find the cuffs were way to big for me but my wrists are pretty little so that’s common for me. Already planning another one with different sleeves 😄 #vintagesewing  #1940shair  #1940sstyle  #vintagestyle  #memade  #sewing  #simplicitypatterns  #sewinghacks  #1940sblouse  #vintage  #landgirl

What's better than a beautiful vintage tin filled with old buttons? Well, probably a lot of things but old buttons are great.

Another flashback blog post today to Hollywood 1857 made last year. Pattern is for a romper with overskirt but I made it into a shirt dress. I like this one and wore it on Friday. #vintagepatterns #vintagesewing #sewingblogger #vintagepledge
Selling a bunch of vintage sewing patterns 💜 dm me if interested, also putting up on my Poshmark #vintagesewing #vintageforsale #vintagedresses
Finally got round to making the matching skirt to the jacket I made for the Tweed Run in May. I took the pattern for it off a 1916 dress I have. #vintagesewing #1910s #1910sfashion #vintagedressmaking #puppytooth #greatwarfashion #firstworldwarfashion #19teensfashion

Hello Instagrammers! I’ve been sewing my little heart out over the past two weeks and decided to take a mini insta-break while I was at it - Me Made May took it out of me 😬 I’m back now and really wanted to share this gorgeous mustard #pippipinafore by @isewyousee 💛  Mustard is proving to be a popular Pippi colour choice with stunning versions also made by @Wendy_stitch & @red_october 🤗
.
I’m not one of these people who can wear mustard by my face, but I’m wondering if I might be able to get away with it for Pippi... with a plain top layered underneath - what do you think? What colours would you go with?

Who ❤️ loves Red? Me!  I really do ❤️ I was so excited to find this little Sylko pincushion and red boot buttons. Can you imagine the little red boots that these were for! And aren't those pressed metal buttons beautiful! They are very thin and have a lovely patina. I think I  may use some of them as a fastening on a handmade book or I may just sit and  look at them. #red #vintage #sylko #pincushion #vintagehaberdashery #buttoncollection #buttoncollector #metalbuttons #treasure #makesmehappy #collection #sylkocollector #sylkothreads #stitchersofinstagram #sylkoaddict #dewhurstsylko #vintagesewing #sewersofinstagram #sewingroom

It's been a beautiful sunny weekend of finding teeny tiny things. I've never seen #motherofpearl #buttons as small as the set on the left. As a girl who loves tiny things, they took my breath away. Thank you to my friend Thea for finding them and knowing I'd love them ❤️ and look at that tiny posy of sewing pins!  They are resting on a collograph I made using vintage lace and cut papers. #cutshapestitch #vintage #vintagebuttons #tinythings #posyofpins #pins #vintagetape #clockface #collograph #sunnyday #buttoncollector #vintagehaberdasheryandfancygoods #vintagehaberdashery #vintagenotions #stitchersofinstagram #frecklesandflowersgirl #sewingroom #vintagesewing #sewersofinstagram
