Got my materials. starting the 5707. Hmm so far I've utterly confused. All this talk of pleating and pivoting has got my head spinning,  Hopefully by the time I finish I'll be out of the beginner range. That or I'll be considered the finding a new hobby range. 

Also i found this fantastic sewing table at a garage sale. I think its meant as a computer desk but its a faux vintage awesome find. $20 and you cant beat that :)

My sewing adventure, pajama pants. They came out a little jacked up, but all in all I made them and I love them since they're my first project. As for the 5707 dress, I'm hoping to start the muslin version this weekend/early next week so that should be interesting. I'll post as I go along. :)  tah dah haha, you can't quite see the messed up crotch, or the fact that their is a hole in the back (I stitched it up now)

  Just bought my first pattern, I'll post it as I go along and I'll show the finished product. I'm not sure but I'm thinking a black fabric on the sleeveless version. What do you think? :)

Hey there, my name is Shanna and I'm a new blogger. I'm a mom of three (one boy, a girl, and a stepson). I live in Texas. I'm into all things vintage and decided I'd start making my own clothes since rockabilly clothing is so expensive. In this blog you'll see everything from make up and hair, to sewing, to baking, and well I guess anything else I can squeeze in. I'm also hoping to make new friends with similar interests. Not sure what to do here first, we'll see what happens.
