I know that quite a few of my readers are probably already familiar with the talented Boyer Sisters from the Boyer Sisters, but I wanted to invite them over to my blog for a lovely chat anyway. These ladies are a wonderful trio of singers in the footsteps of the Andrews Sisters, besides their individual talents in creativity. I love learning from Brigid through the sewing projects she shares, being inspired by Charlotte's photography, and relishing the talent Jessica shows for more traditional art forms.
Fabrics are an important part of getting a truly vintage look. Enter the book Forties Fabric by Joy Shih.
That is a bit of a mouthful! I think I mentioned several months back that I bought two skirts several sizes to large and that I was going to resize them. Well I resized them awhile ago, but only recently remembered that I should blog about them!
I recently bought the book Style Me Vintage 1940s by Liz Tregenza. This was a nice quick read for me.
Before getting on to the serious matters of this post about a WWII related event, just regale in this video of Gene Kelly tap dancing on roller skates!
I am sure that some of my readers are already readers of Jessica's wonderful vintage blog, Chronically Vintage, and for those of you who aren't you don't know what you are missing!
This is half of a skirt. Half of a skirt that is likely to never be a completed skirt since this is the test of my pattern draft. However, as a friend suggested, I could always turn this into an apron.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
