Long time no see!! ;) It has been a crazy month so far, to say the least.
First I got sick on Christmas day, and was sick for a full two weeks afterwards, then it decided to come back again about a week later. So I do have an excuse for shamefully neglecting my blog!! :)
And the other excuse is all the sewing I've been up to! We're working on vacation outfits, three of which I have finished, and am working on the fourth. So to hold you over, here are a few sneak peeks of them!
First off is this comfortable blue 1940s dress, perfect for travelling in the car. And who doesn't love having to make only one buttonhole?! ;)
Next is this polka dot 1950s, commonly known as the "chocolate bonbon dress." This picture was taken before it was quite finished, but you get the general idea. I'm happy to have finally sewed up this fabric! :)
This third one is pretty much my pride and joy. A 1940s sundress and bolero that really meets all my expectations of it! :) I can't wait to pick seashells by the ocean in this!
And lastly is this rayon dress I'm currently working on. In this picture it's actually just pinned to Thelma Lou (no darts in the bodice, unfinished neckline....no back bodice.....you get the idea.) ;) But I am thrilled with how it's coming out, and how easy the fabric is to work with, unlike any other rayons I've dealt with thus far!
Hopefully I'll have a "real" post up next week, but I had to update a bit so you didn't entirely forget about this blog! ;) Thanks for bearing with me!
See you next week!
