September is National Sewing Month. Here is the 1940s version of upcycling from the 1945 The Complete Book of Sewing.
My log cabin quilt squares are nearly complete (the-trailer-quilt-log-cabin-style). Thrift shopping on the North Coast resulted in a $1 bag of floral fabric remnants, so my quilt in progress took a turn to more color. I also like to incorporate applique in my quilts.
My fashion analysis class assignment this week is to identify a movie that has had a big impact on the fashion industry. Two movies that keep coming up are Breakfast at Tiffanys and Flashdance. One movie I believe has made an impact was Pretty Woman. Whenever I see a taupe dress with cream colored polka dots, I think of Julia Roberts.
Pattern of the Day is a 1954 Vogue Vintage throwback.
