    I love how you make things and re-do other things! I have a feeling if we lived close we'd plunder the nearest thrift stores to create something out of... er.. something ;)

    No sewing room is complete without a Feline Supervisor!

    Indeed. Cats just seem to go with sewing. I just got a new kitty on Saturday. When she came out on Monday to hang out and laid smack dab in the middle of my muslin laid out for cutting, I fell in love :)

    Your sewing room looks like that? That's CLEAN!

    hope this shows up

    This is more vintage inspired, I did this in two hours! But cut my finger in the process :(

    I'm thinking of adding black trim and a bow to the bottom.

    My weekend creations.

    This is a yellow and brown calico with brown trim. I made the skirt two layers cause I dont like wearing slips. Both dresses have removable belts.

    [​IMG]

    Here is th detail on the trim.

    Here is a basic shirt dress I made.

    I have another dress cut out and ready to go, but I need to clean before I can start on that :)

    Later ladies!

    Ok.. I've come out of the sewing cave relatively unharmed (minus the strange painful blister on one hand and jabbing myself with a pin under my fingernail on the other hand). So, yes, definately NOT golden era, but here's my 1700's Robe De Francaise:

    Haha! I think my neighbors must think I'm an actor or something- they used to ask me "Are you in a play?" But now I think they're used to me going out (victorian, edwardian, 30's, 40's...) heehee!

    Yup, it's pretty much done. Just needs a few hooks and eyes and a a few short seams to tack the lining to the waist!

    And thank you, Decodoll! :D

    That's incredible detailing, Lauren -- you must be the most patient woman on earth to do that kind of work!

    :eusa_clap Great work Ladies. Lady Day, I'm loving your shirtdress, and oh, buttons, I run from those.

    Lauren, that dress is exquisite, how long does something like that take? I'm far too lazy to think about attempting something like that.

    I love how they tunred out. The pattern is super simple and only took me a day to make each. On the Plaid one, I added a button at the neck.


    PLUS I have enough fabric left over to make matching vests and skirts!! :D :D :D

    They came out great, Lady Day! That's the same jacket I was wearing when we met at Le Colonial! :) I made the longer sleeve without the cuffs, though. I always thought I would add a button too if I made it again.
