Sewing Beauty...

So, I mentioned my quest to start sewing, it all really stemmed from my purchase from Pinupgirl Clothing. Their clothes are so cute, but a $125.00 for a dress is a bit much, especially when I want everything on their website.

Doing some research I found some patterns that have had me drooling all day. I can barely sit still, I want to make them all (granted I first should rush home and learn how to use my machine…LOL).

Granted I want every pattern on their website (and knowing my addictive personality, I probably will ended up getting them all) but these were my top winners.

(All patterns from Vintage Vogue)

I know AMAZING ( I would totally dress like this everyday if I could)!!

This sewing thing is blowing my mind, it’s going to allow me to create my wardrobe just for me. When it comes to buying clothes I have the hardest time finding something to fit my odd shaped body. I have huge boobs, thick thighs and no butt…LOL!! Plus, when I was being created in the Heavens I guess they must have run out of waists, because I don’t have, oh lets not forget about being short. So, being able to make something to fit me perfectly will be a dream come true.

Now, I am not hating on myself by any means. I learned a long time ago to love myself and everything about me. It always sad I see girls talking trash about themselves, as they say, "Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder", and let me say I've checked out your blogs and you guys are all GORGEOUS.

Also, I added Chatbox on the right side of my page that will allow me to respond and post real time messages. I get questions in my comments and thought versus answering them via the comment section I could just respond in my box. Plus I can put random stuff in there too (its like my own little Twitter) and you guys can send me messages or just say Hello!


  1. Those ARE super cute! I wish I had your desire to be crafty though! And I wish I even knew how to sew a button on! Haha.

  2. those are adorable! I love that website but yes the prices make me screech!

  3. OOoooooohhh, I want SO bad to learn to sew!! I used to sew often with my grandmother, but her room is being remodeled. My Hubby told me that we have no space for a sewing machine, so he wont let me get one. But ooohh the dreams of making new things.. One of my blog followers just made an awesome cute dress!! I CANT WAIT to see your dresses.. I know they will be so cute.. can I order like 3 now! (before you blow up into a great seamstress)

  4. lo-lo-love those dresses! good luck in your sewing ventures!

  5. Yessssss, I pretty much want to get a sewing machine so that I can make my own dresses too. XD Getting that retro feel is too rich for my blood a fraction of the cost with a custom fit and the pride that I made something I can enjoy is much more satisfying! Now you've gone and made me add pattern shopping to my list of things to do when I get paid, grrr. Lol.

  6. When you learn you HAVE to teach me!! I would love tobe able to sew!


  7. I want all the vintage vogue patterns too but I limited myself to 4. One of the reasons I sew is that you can make clothes that fit you perfectly. I can't wait to see what you sew.

  8. Those patterns are cute! I actually bought 2 old school Vogue patterns from Goodwill! I just bought a machine a month ago and Im practicing, but I havent made anything yet! I wish you luck though!

  9. Omg, I love both the black and white checked and flora dresses! Which one are you going to start on first???

    I kept my words. Your Hello Kitty was mailed out yesterday! She should be on the flight to Texas by now. Heh heh.

    To answer your question, yes, I do custom order. Are you going to ask me to change those blue roses to PINK ones? Lol.

    Happy sewing!!~~

  10. Eeeeee, can't wait to see how it all goes! xxx


Thanks for showing me some love!
