I made this apron back around Christmas time but due to a very busy schedule I’m only now getting pictures posted. It is made from Simplicity 4282, view E in a really pretty cotton print bought just for an apron. I’ve decided I really like the print and style and the only thing I would… Continue reading Vintage Apron
This is the nightgown I made to go with my housecoat. It is the same pattern my sister used for hers and she very kindly allowed me to use it as well. Thanks, sis! 🙂 I made it in 100% cotton I bought on clearance at Jo-Ann’s and cut it on the bias. It was… Continue reading Vintage Nightgown

It is one of my favorites and I wear it often, hence the slight fading. 🙂 Shoes were borrowed from my sister for the picture. Thanks, sis!… Continue reading WIFD – Day Five – Thursday

I paired it… Continue reading WIFD-Day Three-Tuesday
This is the first time I’ve participated in the Week in Feminine Dress that the ladies on Sense and Sensibility do every once in a while. I just started a job this week so I don’t think I will be able to do it every day but I will try to do it as much… Continue reading WIFD – Day One – Sunday
A crocheted sweater that used to be a hideous green color but after two packages of dye is now a wonderful dark green. I don’t have before pictures but it used to be this color: And now….
