patterns, and let's sew!

Hope you had a nice weekend! I sorted through a fair stack of vintage children's patterns, checking to make sure all of the pieces were still there and in good condition, while listening to my church's conference. It was a lovely way to spend time - feeling productive and inspired at once. I enjoyed all of the talks, but especially this one - I could use that reminder weekly. 

"and when i am taller, i can sew too!'

You may have noticed that I added a new vintage patterns section to the shop last week. I will be adding more patterns to it soon, including some fun Halloween costumes, so stay tuned!

When I came across this pattern it told me to sew it, so I will be looking for fabric this week. I want to make view C (the red one). It will probably be a little big on LM, but that just means she will be able to wear it longer. I'll be looking for fabric that can easily translate from fall/winter to spring/summer. I thought it would be fun to show you my progress along the way.

Want to sew something too? Choose a pattern and fabric, and I'll meet you back here next Monday to start cutting!


  1. i never find cute kid's ones (well, usually what i find is 80s nasty shoulder pad dresses). where do you find them?? :-)

    so fun. can't wait to see it!

  2. Stacy I have a whole box of really cute vintage kid patterns that someone gave me that I'll never use. I would love to give you some for your shop! Email me if you are interested.

  3. I loved that talk too! Great idea to add a vintage pattern section to your shop!

  4. I have patterns but I just wish I could find the time. I have a one day pile, hopefully I get too while my kiddies can still fit them.

  5. oh yipee! I love me some vintage patterns!
