finally finishing another vintage textile masterpiece:) anyway.
vintage euro lace on a 1970's textile waist
and little 1940's british made buttons anchoring the elastic at the back.
12 more skirt studies planned this summer.  
all will make their way to my etsy shop.
i love the look and feel of vintage fabrics for dress up pieces and all my hand sewn details make it feel so timeless in character.

taking a brain twisting class this summer at my local junior college with my darling daughter. full of plotting points and tiny dimensions on x and y coordinates.  i really thought i would never use that sort of math idea in my life.  it is coming in handy understanding all that.

pictured is my first a bodice up and down. lots of homework and concentration required.  i don't do anything else in my life where i have to pay microscopic attention for so long...super tricky to keep my brain on task.

excited to have a deeper look into where patterns and people grow in sizing.  will be very useful in my vintage pattern re-sizing for miss teapot dress up.  coming soon:)
