Overalls are finished!

Man, nearly a week with no posts. Sorry about that. I lost a freelance gig then got another one that's been taking up my time, and I'm glad for it. Don't get me wrong, I love the sewing, but rent is awesome.

But I did have some time to do some hand sewing.
I stitched the bib to the pants and presto, instant overalls!

I've put the pictures on NVL.

I also put up more images of my tweed beret and my tailored jacket.

Thanks!

  6. They look so cool! Now you need to go tinker on an airplane or something. I especially love the button up back.

  8. Aw, you guys are sweet :)

    Brown denim was quite common in workwear of the 40s, Peter, thats why I chose it. Its not that easy to come by now, though. So when I found some (non lycra) at the fabric store, I jumped on it!

    Plus the gingham blouse is actually made from 40s fabric ;)

  10. Oh my gosh - these are fabulous, and you look super-cute in them! I've always wanted to make some, but I'm not sure that I could carry them off as well as you do ....
