Do you know the joke: How can you tell if someone’s vegan? … don’t worry, they’ll tell you. (Sorry vegans, but I’m about to make a point!) Well, how can you tell RED has been working out? Don’t worry, I’ll flipping tell you and your grandma AND make exercise clothes and share them with the… Continue reading Work-Out Hudsons
I have made the ultimate Gertie item… Butterick pattern 6217 with a Gertie cotton sateen fabric! Things are getting crazy over here! I could have copied Gertie exactly in her post here and used my Gertie rayon fabric for this blouse. BUT I like to think I’m more creative than that, so I went with… Continue reading Gertie + Gertie = Fabulous Vintage Top!

I knew the moment it was… Continue reading A Seamwork Catarina
I think McCall’s 6696 has to be the most sewn dress on the internet. I mean, it is flattering on almost everyone who wears it and I suppose it does give one a sense of accomplishment (Millions of pleats! Tons of hand-stitching! Collar and button holes!). It is also a great stash-buster as this is… Continue reading A Gingham McCall’s 6696, AKA Another 1950’s House Wife Dress

It’s almost like it was meant to be — a Gertie fabric paired with a Vogue pattern. If you’re familiar with Gretchen Hirsch (AKA Gertie) then you’ll see what I mean. I’ve been following her for a while, even though her vintage style isn’t really my bag. But she has loads of knowledge and now… Continue reading Gertie + Vogue 8815
