    Such cute stuff ladies! I'm interning with Revamp this summer and am learning so much about patterns and fabric. I've decided to finally bust out the sewing machine for real when I go home for the summer and start learning to sew.

    Lauren, I love your outfit! I'd love to see more pictures of it. I remember you mentioning something about the Costume College in your LJ. Are you going? I'm going to be there with Revamp! You better say hi if you're there! ;)

    Yes! I will be there all weekend, and Vanessa and I are teaching two classes! If they let you, you should pop your head in, but I will definately come by and say hi! :D

    Lauren, your outfit is simply wonderful. I also don't know anyone else who sews, but from the long lines in Joannes there are plenty.

    I feel a little silly because there are such amazing, wearable things in this thread, and my stuff is all kind of silly and very, very not vintage. I don't trust myseslf to make clothes to wear every day, I'm totally sure they'd fall apart in the middle of the office. But this is what I wore last weekend:

    Mercy BV. I think if you are able to sew this a frock of some kind would be no biggie.

    my 1926 dress

    I just made a 1926 dress for our vintage streetcar ride (I´m the one on the left):

    All our dresses were made from original patterns of the time, we collect vintage fashion magazines which usually have the original patterns inside. Mine was made after this pattern:

    I saw no harm in coming into this thread momentarily... everyone decent? Okay, good. :)

    Usually I'm not a fan of prints like that, but that's just darling with the black top and shoes.

    BettyValentine: May not be as wearable, but you still obviously put a lot of work into it. Nice job.

    I wish I knew some of you ladies in real life. I have no sewing machine, thus no way to practice making things myself. :(

    Thank you Nikki & Lady D!
    Sari, the streetcar is located in Essen. We booked a tour but were much disappointed because it was promised to be a 20s streetcar, in fact it is from 1949. And besides nothing on this tour was really from the 20s because Essen was destroyed in the World Wars. But we are going to organize our very own 20s picnique in August. :)
    I also keep a LiveJournal so if you like you may friend me.

    Betty Valentine that outfit is stunning! Looks like it was so much fun to make and wear--which is the point of sewing in my opinion.

    Frl. Wunder your picture is great. I love your dress but the hat is perfect! Is it vintage or did you make it?
