Hello hope you are enjoying the end of your summer. I know I was trying to milk the most out of mine as I go back to work on Monday and am soon to be too busy to enjoy it as much as I have been. It has been a while since I have posted and I have lots of drafts of post I just haven't bothered to finish (I know bad blogger). Today I thought I would finish this post. One of my favorite boards on pinterest is my Sew This (pattern) board. When I first started pinning it was a catch all for all my sewing interest but as it got fuller I started to separate out tutorials and needle work. I can't promise you won't still find some of those items on this board but I can tell you it is full of lovely patterns from the past. Above is lovely Hollywood pattern for a 1940s dress.
I love this 1950's wiggle dress with the side swag cummerbund.
I have bee thinking of making myself a 1930's evening dress. I found out the local history museum is having speak easy night on my birthday so I thought a 30s evening wear would be a good choice s my husband will want to wear a tux. I have no evening dresses as I have always been more of a day dress/ cocktail dress kind of gal.

Notice I changed my pinterest name for the sake of privacy as I teach high school and well I like to have some privacy from my students.
thats all folk, Susan
