Looking for Something?

Ruby Star Vinyl Skirt


I finished my latest “me” project made from Melody Miller’s Ruby Star Vinyl fabric collection. It’s technically the bottom half of a Hazel dress that I added pleats and a waistband to. Soooo, it’s a Ruby Star Haznyl?

The waistband ended up being way too big so I have to belt it, which made the top all ruffly looking. I guess I don’t mind though. I need to stop measuring myself after eating a huge lunch or something because lately I can’t draft a proper fitting waistband to save my life! *sigh* I did do a pretty bang up job matching the side seams though so I’m happy with that. You win some, you lose some, I suppose.

Yeah I was totally freezing but my hair looked cute so who cares, right? I saw Tasha’s tutorial on how to do a vintage style backroll and I really wanted to try it out. There’s a way more complicated tutorial for the same look in this vintage hairstyle book I have and I could never get it right. Thank you Tasha for making sense of it for me! It works perfectly with one of my hair scarves, don’t you think?

It’s a hairstyle that looks especially magical with snow flurries mixed in ;) I’m hoping to head to The Vermont Country Store at some point this weekend (weather permitting) to pick up some supplies for a WWII reenactment that I’m participating in soon. SO excited!

What are you up to this weekend?

I'm a fabric wizard and wielder of needles with a passion for quilt industry cottons, bygone eras, and natural things.

i.e. I mostly do nerd things like pretend I'm a wizard, collect moldy books, and spend too much time picking up acorns in the woods, all with my spirit animal (a dog named Lucille), my personal photographer (a man named William), and a few literal fat cats in tow.
