Dream of a Wardrobe

My current pictorial sewing list - so far only the brown linen and the dirndl skirt are crossed off. 

But coming soon - a china-blue windowpane check blouse with lace peter pan collar + a wheat-colored ruffle shawl collar regency style blouse!

Such delicious chocolate colored linen...
This skirt is now available for purchase!

A beautiful sight for the seamstress.

I also just ordered some sumptuous plaid wool suiting in a sage/brown with teal accents.
I am smitten with the asymmetrical styling of this Highland Romance skirt from ModCloth, and as soon as I saw this fabric, I decided to go for it.

Oh so yummy!
While I was at it, I selected some of this beautiful cotton baby rib knit to experiment with.  I've been thinking about trying some knit blouse-style tops for awhile now, and this material would look so lovely with the plaid above!

As you can tell, I'm quite inspired at the moment by plaids, ruffles, Anthro-style sweaters, and woodland tones...
What kind of fashions have you been loving lately?


  1. I know it is winter but I have been loving floral patterns and anything knit/crocheted!

    Can't wait to see your finished results! Love your site!

    Much love,

  2. Super cute! I'll take one of each, please;)
    The plaid skirt is going to be darling and I'm in love with both of your blouses already.
    Can I borrow the patterns when you're done? =)

  3. QUOTE: "What kind of fashions have you been loving lately?"

    For Spring/Summer, Regency-style gowns or those cute peasant-type Gunne Sax dresses from the '70s. Also some Romantic/early-Victorian gowns...but simplified, like Molly Gibson's clothes in "Wives and Daughters."
    For Winter, Princess-seamed dresses with a slightly Medieval/Renaissance/fantasy flavor. Puffed upper sleeves with fitted lowers, nicely tailored bodices and FULL flared skirts to twirl in...that sort of thing. :-)

    Love your pictorial sewing list. So much easier than writing out two paragraphs of details so you'll know what you're talking about, LOL. I'm especially intrigued by that Medieval-looking gown at the bottom....;-)

    That windowpane check is going to be adorable, especially with the lace collar--it's so you!

    Love that other pattern with the tucks (?) in the bodice, too. Reminds me of my "Wood Violet" blouse. Very cute.

    God bless,
    Happy sewing,
    and have a blessed Thanksgiving,
