Tsk Tsk


I’ve been a terrible blogger of late—I go away for vacation, and just can’t seem to get out of vacation mode now that I’m back. I’ve been naughty, I know! While I’m working on a nice recap post for our trip to Nashville (complete with pictures, of course), I thought I’d give you a little update on my sewing projects to get me back into the blogging swing of things. Currently, I’m working on making up this little 1944 number—I’ve whipped up two blouses already, one in black cotton batiste, and one in a delicious aqua eyelet—and I’m currently finishing up a matching eyelet skirt. I adore the pattern and can see myself making it up again--it sews up quickly and easily, and the only adjustment I made was to add a little extra length to the blouse. Real pictures to follow soon, I promise!

Oh, and I must show you pictures of my new tropical outfit, created for me by a local seamstress—I picked it up yesterday and can't wait to wear it! Here’s a sneak peak of the fabric; I’ll add photos of me modeling it later today ;-)

  3. Thank you for the comment, Debi! The fabric is an amazing drapey rayon--I love it!

    And thank you for your comment as well, Ruby! I fully admit to buying patterns based on cute cover art alone :-)

  11. Thanks for all the kind words!

    I've yet to take photos this week--every time I get home it ends up being too late to really get a good outfit shot :-( However, my dear friend Rose and I attended a hat/wig making workshop at the museum last night, and I wore the aqua version of the peasant blouse. So, I should have pics of that shortly--and I'll try to have my Sweetie photograph the others tonight :-)
