I ♥ this skirt!

It is one of my favorites to date :) & I just added it to my etsy shop. I just ordered tons of fun new fabrics and I will hopefully keep up on my skirt making so that I can have new skirts at the shop and new skirts on etsy.
I am off to have coffee with Lesley!

Have a great day!

Vintage gals...

I have had this amazing vintage pattern collection for years. I am so drawn to them.. most of them I have never tried to recreate, but they are sooo much fun! I decided to make some sweet magnets out of them. I used scrap magnetic strips from my friend Josh/sign guy and decoupaged on the patterns and then cut around the images! I especially love the pink ones with all the pieces of the pattern shown.

I am hoping to get some pictures of skirts to post online today.. the sun is finally out!Yay!

Have a great day! :)

A GOOD mail day....

I love a good mail day.. no bills (well maybe one) and lots of goodies. Button covers, vintage lace (I had to have) and some vintage goodies to make rings with!
I am feeling a bit under the weather, but I am hoping to get lots of sewing done tomorrow for the shop. I have a ton of skirts to sew. I also just ordered the cutest vintage (but new) looking sundress. (I could not find any pics that would upload so I will have to share it another day!)

Hope your week is off to a great start! :)

He is ok, but needs to be on 24 hour watch to make sure he doesn't have a concussion (I am a horrible speller) I apologize for any convienence. I will be open tomorrow (Fri.)9-2:30 and Sat. 10-3

Thank you for understanding!

New hair clips!

I have several new hair clips in new fabrics for spring. I think they are very vintage inspired(some are vintage fabrics). ;) I love them! I will slowly be adding them here over the next week or so & I have most (if they have not sold already) at the shop & some at Anthology.

I am also hoping to add a few skirts to my etsy shop soon.. and a few new surprises!
(I'll keep ya posted!)

Happy Monday!

I feel really good about the new shop even in this horrid economy.
A gal said today.. " I looove this shop and I can't believe how affordable everything is "
I really wanted a pic of the outside of the building.. but between rain, snow and wind the weather is just not cooperating.. maybe tomorrow! I

I love this....

pinafore soooo much that I just had to have it. In fact it is in the mail and on its way to me! Yeah! (photo borrowed from fancy clothing)
I found Necessityisthemother.etsy.com a few months ago and have been hooked ever since. How can you not, most being one of a kind made of vintage fabrics and sewn by the amazing designer/seamstress Arielle of fancy clothing (aka necessityisthemother). She not only makes pinafores, but jumpers and high waisted skirts! I think my favorite is my cowboy and indian skirt, but honestly I love them all!
Arielle's amazing pinafores will be available at my new shop too!I am soo excited!We open in less than 1 week! It is all coming together and I can't wait to show you!
