https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJtL8vWNZ4o Don't mind me, I'm just chilling over at this place being super geeky as usual! Why is the blog moving? Well, honestly, for mostly very boring and practical reasons: I used up just about all the space here and blogging about sewing and fashion and all of that jazz without photos would be quite … Continue reading Movin’ Out
2018 was such a wild year, and as I look back on it, I can't help but feel really positive and proud. There were so many things that happened that could have completely broken me, but they didn't. There is no doubt that leaving my husband and all of the drama that followed (including him … Continue reading Looking Back, Looking Forward
I recently bought two fabulous vintage dresses from Padam Vintage, and thought I would write a little review of both the dresses and the shop itself! My dresses arrived quickly, safely packaged in a box, with the dresses carefully wrapped in paper and an adorable gift from Granny's Dishcloths! The dresses were exactly as described … Continue reading Padam Vintage Review
Just taking a quick break from finishing up the last tiny bit of work on the two remaining Little Women dolls to pop in and wish everyone Happy Holidays! No matter who you are or what you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a healthy, happy 2019 filled with peace, love … Continue reading Happy Holidays!
Recently I've been completely obsessed with Scarlett Willow Shop, a vintage clothing store I found on Etsy that specializes in clothing from the 1960's and 70's. As you may know if you've read my blog over the last few months, I've been particularly into fashions from the 1970's and have mostly been making myself clothes … Continue reading Spotlight: Scarlett Willow Shop
Do I have better things to do than go on a rant about the Early Spring pattern release from Simplicity? Of course I do, but is that gonna stop me? Nope. Because I just looked through the entire collection and counted eight apron patterns. Yes. You read that correctly. Eight. Apron. Patterns. WTF? Why?! There … Continue reading Simplicity’s Early Spring 2019 Pattern Release: WTF is with all the aprons?!
Awhile back I bought two Ohhh Lulu sewing patterns so I could make myself some lovely vintage inspired undergarments. I was so excited the day I bought the first one, Sarah's high waist Ava panties, that I went straight out and bought supplies at Fabricland, printed the pattern, prepped the pattern and fabric and got … Continue reading In The Pink Room Mini Review
Wow, it feels like forever since I last posted! There's been a lot going on, including a medical scare that temporarily put a halt to all my glorious doll making plans for a week or so (luckily the medical stuff ended up being nothing as scary as the doctor originally thought, but will involve ongoing … Continue reading Making Little Women, Part 4: Progress
The saga of the Little Women dolls continues! Since completing the mock up of the Beth March doll (which I posted about here and here) I decided to dive in and try making Jo, since I'm pretty sure every single one of my sisters would prefer a Jo doll. Yesterday I finished sewing and stuffing … Continue reading Making Little Women, Part 3: Mistakes Happen
In my last post I wrote about the Little Women dolls I'm making for my sisters this Christmas and shared with you all the very bald mock up I had made of Beth March. Well, I'm happy to report that she finally has hair! YAY! (Click to enlarge images) I'm still learning how to do … Continue reading Making Little Women Part 2, and lululalaine Review!
