Dana’s Lily Jacket

Super-Star sewist Dana made this adorable wool jacket from the Decades of Style 1931 Lily Jacket” pattern. Isn’t it adorable?

She used this yummy Camel Tweed Shetland Wool fabric and bound her seams with a printed silk chiffon cut on the bias. The contrast creates such a fun surprise detail.

And we’re head over heels for the detailed seams on the back. Dana really made this vintage pattern feel contemporary; an enviable addition to her wardrobe!

Painted Portrait Blouse

Julia made this fabulous pattern from Anna Maria Horner. Julia said this pattern was easy to follow and easy to make and the results are very flattering, as you can see! She looks Adorable!

This pattern is awesome because there are a total of twelve variations, oh the possibilities. There are options for a solid yoke or for a patchwork style yoke, a dress or blouse length, 3/4 length sleeves or sleeveless. Julia’s take on the pattern turned out super cute! She did the 3/4 length sleeve blouse in a Mark Jacobs plaid shirting fabric with her own interpretation on the patchwork yolk.

For the Yolk she used two different fabrics from Anna Griffin’s line “Honoka.” This top is flattering for every body type and gives you creative freedom to play with your fabric choices. We love this pattern and Julia’s style and fabric choices really made it come to life and she did a wonderful job!
