Vintage May

 

As usual, it took a guest-posting spot to get me to start and finish a sewing project. I'm over at Skirtastop today sharing my little vintage inspired dress as part of Kristin and Jess's (of Craftiness is Not Optional)  Vintage May series.


  

This is probably one of the simplest things I've sewn but I made more mistakes and had to rip apart more seams on this little dress than anything I've ever made I think. I blame my distracted brain.
  
Why distracted?  My computer crashed (like in a major way) last week and I've been battling it ever since! The good news is that I got all my files back (6 hours at the Mac store later). The bad news is that my video card is on its way out making things totally unpredictable and crashy with this here machine. So it looks like we'll have to replace her soon.

At any rate, head on over and check out my dress if you are so inclined. And check out the Vintage May board on Pinterest for even more inspiration. 

Happy Friday!

  1. You are such a friggin' genius. I can't decide what I like most--the silhouette, the length, the color, the suede detail, or the bow in her hair! Plus now I can't get Violent Femmes out of my head (Blister in the Sun, anyone?). So thanks for that. :)

  5. This is fab! I have some hot pink suede leftover from some baby moccasins that I sewed together and I think using suede on a yoke is an awesome idea that I want to remember! :)
