I just love the vintage stuff; a lot…..

Good evening all!…I’ve been in the streets as my elders would say since I got off work yesterday and I can say I’m tired now….Its my birthday weekend (my actual birthday is Monday) so I decided to go visiting my friends…it was one of my friend’s birthday today I went over there and spent the day with her….Now as you all know I LOVE VINTAGE and anything “old school” and sewing and patterns don’t hardly ever disappoint….I’m showcasing Simplicity’s remake of one of their Jiffy patterns; #1609 View C….I made this dress quite some time ago and had only worn it once to my Sweetest’s Aunt’s wedding….I decided to wear it today because I just felt vintage-y…..and I’ve been watching Mad Men since I got Netflix a few weeks ago so I fell right back in total love with that era’s fashion…..I also found some Jellies (shoes) that I wore as a child as well as my daughter…as soon as I saw ’em I knew I had to have em…so all the way old school is what I was today….
I loved sewing this dress…it has 4 darts on the front and shoulder darts too…the reason its called a Jiffy pattern is because it only has two main pattern pieces….but the details are just awesome….I whipped it up out of some super cool Pique I found at Hancock’s of course…they also had Pink but I opted for the Blue…..I could hardly photograph the details well enough while wearing the dress but I wrote a blog post about it when I finished a while back and those photos were better at showing the awesome little details I love so much about this dress…I have a matching sash but I didn’t wear it today..its beyond comfortable and I’ll definitely be getting a few more wears out of it before the Summer ends…..let me know if you want to read about it and I’ll post the link….Do you have a favorite style to sew?…If you do, what is it?….I’ll talk to you good people soon!

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
