I absolutely love to sew and have a passion for collecting vintage patterns and other sewing memorabilia.  At the moment I have probably thousands of vintage patterns which I have collected over the past 10+ years, my favorites among them being from the 40s and 50s, and my prized possessions being the earliest ones, from the 20s.

In addition to this, I have old pattern catalogs, sewing dolls, books, and etc.  I can sit and just look through boxes of patterns for hours, like a little boy with his baseball cards.  

Though I have a day job, I have spent a bulk of my spare time in the past 10+ years designing and doing costumes/wardrobe for local film and local theatre.  I have loved every second of it, yet I always have spent so much time making things for other people and have always wanted to start sewing more for me.  For years now I have been saying that I was going to start making things from those patterns, and this week, I finally did.  I have never enjoyed making something so much in my life and I have decided not to stop.

I am starting this blog as I continue to design and sew again to talk about vintage patterns & vintage fashion, fashion and pattern design, general sewing and anything else that might peak my interest!  I look forward to this journey.

I live in Cincinnati with my wonderful husband, two step-minions, one very large dog, one very small dog, 7 chickens, three fish tanks, and a very mean cat.
