sneak peek

::sneak peek::

Yes, I'm going to toot my own horn and share some pictures I quickly took this afternoon. I'm really excited about these. They're trousers I am planning to sell in my shop very very soon. I have other items I plan to make as well, but it's been rough finding the time to work on these. I just got a huge commission from a living history site and that work load coupled with my regular work makes sewing on the side pretty difficult. BUT, I'm working as fast as I can and hopefully within a few months, I will have my shop open with my new (old-fashioned) line of clothes based on vintage patterns and original 1930s-'40s garments. I tell everyone I love men's working wear, so why can't women also pull off this look? Here's my attempt at it. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks!

These are so snazzy! I love vintage trousers so much... (I really need to whip up another pair for myself.) And I'm super excited to hear about your new vintage-inspired line! :)

Cute pants

Buttons are so great! I think they are an entirely underused aesthetic delight on clothing. I guess one problem is that they can too easily look "crafty" rather than as natural as you get them to look. Well done!

Anna, those pants are fabulous! I can't wait to see your line of "old-fashioned" clothing! Best of luck!

Must have those trousers! I found your beautiful blog via Savilintu a while ago and realized I've seen (and admired) your work before, at Sense & Sensibility I think. Your photos are lovely, too!

I Wish you good luck with your future shop!
