This Week

March 29, 2013


From top left to bottom right:

1.) I found the perfect vintage pattern to recreate my Peggy dress for $7.50 on eBay! (Thanks to an amazing commenter on my last post)

2.) I had lunch with a friend at a beautiful local green house cafe. It felt like spring in there and they had delicious cookies.

3.) I found a bunch of 1960’s patterns at Goodwill that I know Erin will love!

4.) I fell in love with this cute vintage blouse from a second hand shop. It buttons up the back.

5.) I bought a hand screened fat quarter print by Skinny laMinx from nido.

6.) I got a reprint of Sew and Save in the mail from Alexandra. (Thank you!!)

7.) I couldn’t pass up this 1940’s hospital gown pattern also found at Goodwill for $0.99!

8.) I was putting off doing the blind hem on my Sew For Victory dress because my hand sewing isn’t great, but Lucille helped me through it and I got it done. It doesn’t look too bad actually.

9.) I heard Lucille digging around in my fabric scraps again and found her on her bed with them. She likes to make nests.

Also this week, I saw my face in the April issue of Making Magazine!!

Making is a UK magazine so it’s a bit hard to find in the states unfortunately. I downloaded an e-copy with an app called Pocket Mags.


I don’t know about you, but I’m super excited for The Great Gatsby movie to come out in May! Are you interested in a Gatsby themed sew along in time for the premier? Let Erin know!

Don’t forget to add your finished Sew For Victory garments to the Flickr pool, and then comment on this post for a chance to win some prizes! I can’t wait to share my finished dress (and everyone else’s) soon!


How was your week?
