Adventures in Dressmaking!!!

So ummm yeah --- I made this dress with no pattern. The darts are slightly crooked so along with fixing those, I need to hem the bottom. After sitting at my sewing machine for hours - sticking myself with pins and taking that thing off an on, it is finally close to being finished.

Its very basic with a "scoop neck". The fabric is some vintage jersey knit that I picked up at my local Peddlers Mall yesterday.
Once its finished, I'll post photos of it actually "on"!!!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

PB Has a Home!!

There is this little space between the boys rooms and the "community bathroom".... Never have I been able to find a piece of furniture that would fit...

Well, I think We've found a permanent home!!!
Please ignore the dust on the floor - the maid is on strike!

This aint no PB Knockoff!!

You can only imagine my excitement when I scored this bad boy at one of my many FAVORITE Peddlers Malls for $10! I cannot even pretend to be able to afford to shop at Pottery Barn. Their merchandise is beautiful but I just don't have that kind of cash flow.

Still not sure what to do with him.... The drawers are kind of small - this will be perfect for the overflow of vintage buttons and notions that make their way out of my closet on a daily basis. We shall see.
