Amazing job - love how you incorporated the lace detailing into the design and used the buttons as a feature - nice!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Easy tutorial on how to transform a 1970s maxi into a vintage-style mini dress on: June 20, 2015 12:54:53 AM
I picked up this fabulous maxi dress for a fiver at a vintage fair a few months ago. It hung forlorn in the wardrobe unworn because it was too darn insane for everyday wear.

It was too 'fancy dress' but just too good to languish on the rail.

A couple of hours of pinning, cutting and sewing and I was left with this!

Step-by-step details can be found over on ze blog, here: http://mancunianvintage.com/the-thighs-the-limit-how-to-easily-transform-a-1970s-maxi-into-a-vintage-style-mini-dress/

So I took some curtain material and transformed it a la Sound of Music into a cute little designer-inspired number.

Loads of pictures and a tutorial can be found here:  Grin

Ooh this is absolutely gorgeous... I've been after a cape for aaaages!

What level do you reckon you need to be sewing-wise to have a go at this?

Here are just some of the knitted (in rib!) goodies I've made recently including a Breton-inspired jumper and a gorgeous vintage-inspired turban...


6  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Craftivist Collective #Lovefashionhatesweatshops on: September 10, 2013 02:50:43 PM
I've been involved with a group called Craftivist Collective - who campaign using crafts.

Their latest initiative is with War on Want's 'Love Fashion Hate Sweatshops' campaign.

I made my own banner (first time stitching lettering!) which you can see here...


Let me know what you think!


7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From frumpy to fabulous! 1960s-inspired vintage dress recon on: July 01, 2013 02:20:59 PM
I'm still very much a newbie when it comes to using my sewing machine and following patterns, but what I lack in skill I make up with enthusiasm.  Grin

One of my favourite projects so far has been turning this...

... into this!

The full tutorial is available here....


What do you think?

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Vintage knitted collar on: September 27, 2012 08:13:07 AM
A little while back I made a detachable lacy collar from Claire Montgomeries Knitting Vintage.

It was a really straightforward pattern, and is perfect for using up the last half ball of wool.

My original images are on my old laptop... but I did manage to put them up on my blog before they disappeared.

Full pics are here:


Has anyone else made this/other detatchable collars?
