>First off, thanks so much to everyone who left such nice comments on my new haircut! Horray! I’ve been having so much fun playing with ways to dress it, and nearly every night I’ve been putting in curlers, since it’s fun to see the results in the morning and it dries so fast!
I’ve been a busy bee this weekend! It started with Friday with two of my very best girlfriends coming to visit and barbecue. We had a sew-a-thon for sure, and I got so much done! Saturday was the 4th. God bless America! I love that holiday, so no sewing but lots of flag waving, eating, and visiting with family. Sunday another sew-a-thon, with lots getting done and nearly everything from my trip finished!
Here’s a super cute pair of pjs- the tops are from CiCi of CiCi Speaks, and the bottoms are from Green Dragon Lady on Etsy. I made the belt this weekend, so one trip sewing thing crossed off the list! Hurrah for pjs! I feel very Myrna Loy in them.
Ever since I saw “The Women” for the first time, I wanted a dress like Paulette Goddard wore on the train to Reno. I finally found a hooded dress pattern on eBay, and got it and started it the same day! The skirt looked like way too much work with all those pleats and I really wanted to use my sombrero fabric I’ve been hording for a few years, so I used the skirt from a different pattern instead.
I had another pic of a dress that I actually started last week, but I deleted it on accident. Whoops? The ruffles didn’t show up very well anyway, so I’ll take more another time. And I made a hat I forgot to take pics of, too!
The last one I have photos of are the pants I finally made! These are a super lightweight denim, and the pattern is a mid 1930s one from Vintage Fashion Library. I bought the pattern probably four of five years ago and made one pair, but needed to make a larger pair. Unfortunately she’s out of stock, but maybe she’ll print more.
