I did it! I joined in on a dress challenge (Sew for Victory created by the lovely Lucky Lucille) and finished the dress on time and well I'm pretty p-u-m-p'd about it! The finished dress is adorable and I can't wait for the weather to warm a bit (silly Western Washington doesn't get warm until like July!) to wear it!
Now...on to the next challenge! A Mad Men style dress for Julia Bobbin! I even have a legit vintage pattern I purchased from a local Vintage Market for $1! It's very Joan Harris! Keep posted for updates!

I've recently stumbled across a delightful blog, Lucky Lucille, who put out a challenge to find and make a 40's style dress in her "Sew for Victory" dress challenge. I scoured for a pattern and found the Swing Dress at www.sensibility.com. It was a challenge to figure out the bodice but I learned several new techniques and can't wait to wear the finished product! I made it with some cute pale pink polka dot fabric I bought at Wal-Mart and lined it with Kona Cotton.
Sooo...I'm a little late when it comes to the world of blogging but now I'm here and it's a wonderful world. The Internet is a wealth of information (and let's be honest, distractions). In its vast pages we can find an untold number of treasures, and for a craftophile like myself, a million more projects to add to my already lengthy queue! I have found a little niche of vintage loving crafters worlds to explore. I'm going to start using these pages to share my projects and connect with like minded folks.
