Feeling Vintage


When you’re lucky, a wonderful custom fabric host will offer to let you sew up some of her awesome cozy strike-offs for her next round. The wonderful ladies over at Vintage Lace asked me to do just this for their spring line. I was soooooo excited to get that message. Happy dancing may or may not have been involved.

Just check out these gorgeous prints!


The feminine florals, neutral shamrocks, and totally sassy hip-hopping bunnies are out of this world AND are available in super cozy cotton-lycra OR the cuddliest Brushed Poly! And when I say cuddly, I mean, I asked my husband to pet it at least ten times before even sewing, inside and out, because I needed him to understand the miracle-level cuddliness of this fabric.

I was sent the  super awesome hip-hopping bunnies, a few panels, and that gorgeous shamrock fabric. I am still working on the shamrocks and the adult-sized panel, but an outfit jumped out at me for my son and it needed to happen ASAP!

My son was seriously excited that it was his turn for a mommy-made outfit AND his turn to take pictures BY HIMSELF. He was soooooo excited, this happened when we went to take pictures…

His whole out fit was made with patterns from Patterns for Pirates PDF patterns (which are awesome for the novice or experiences sewist!). The top is a Jolly Roger Raglan with Add-on cross-over hood. His pants are the Baby Bear joggers with slat pockets and cuffs.

You can get in on the Vintage lace Preorder HERE. The star fabric came from TKB Prints and while not always available, Lisa Marie (TKB Goddess in Charge) always has gorgeous star color ways going on! Check her fabric out HERE.
