Sue made this groovy a-line skirt from Japanese linen/cotton fabric, and a self-drafted pattern. She is a student at Sew-It-All, and credits them with keeping her on track. She sews about half of her wardrobe, so it must be working! We love the fabric’s literary typewriter design and its soothing color combination of muted chartreuse and aqua….and how Sue accessorized her skirt with beatnik black tights, boots, cardigan, and knit top – so chic and playful!

Jody of RocketCityDigs made this adorable a-line holiday jumper for her daughter out of vintage double-knit fabric from Britex Fabrics. The festive Kelly green rick-rack and cherry-red buttons add a smashing touch, and were also bought at Britex. To make it even more impressive, Jody self-drafted the pinafore pattern from one of Eliza’s old jumpers and some newspaper! Check out Jody’s blog for what she did the remainder of her vintage fabric. FYI: We just found some more vintage fabric, including some slinky polyester jerseys. All vintage polyester can be found on our 4th floor.
