We’re picky! We want everything we offer to our customers to be beautiful and make a statement. We also want to have fun doing it. That’s why we keep it local. This limited edition canvas tote bag was designed by a San Francisco graphic designer, printed 20 minutes from our store, and sewn in the Dogpatch. We paid a little visit to the printer last week, and had way more fun than expected.

Hello fellow sewing enthusiasts! I’m Laura Mae from Lilacs & Lace. It will probably come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of vintage patterns. I adore reproductions, which are generally a little more forgiving because of the added markings and updated instructions, free of damage and strange smells. But there is something wonderful about working with a vintage pattern that is decades old. Some have written notes or postmarks, and even contain newspaper clippings, or facing pieces cut from newsprint. I love to imagine what the original purchaser had in mind when she picked out her pattern!
I chose a beautiful lightweight navy wool for this mail order pattern from the late 1940s. A classic fabric for a classic silhouette!
