This is Vogue V1236 DKNY pattern. A simple tank dress with pleated neckline and belt. I sewed it up in a teal linen and it came together easily. I did do the neckline pleats backwards but I doubt anyone will notice! Cut and sewn in a day on the Victoria Day Long Weekend.


High Waisted Denim Skirt

One should have a great pencil skirt in their wardrobe. A denim one is double duty! You can dress it up or down! This is a pattern of my own design and sewn up one day over the long weekend.

Another version of the DKNY dress. This time in animal printed linen! I changed the direction of the pleats at the neckline and think that they're actually backwards in this version. Oh well, the pattern hides it well! Cut and sewn the weekend of May 25-26th, 2013.

I didn't sew this myself. However, it is handmade vintage silk suit from the 40's. I found this in a vintage shop in Boonville, California when I was down visiting my D.O.D. in July. I can barely breathe in it but it's sooo worth it!
