This outfit shows why I am thinking about changing my blog. Yes, I love vintage patterns, but not everything I sew is vintage. It is possible to find stylish, flattering modern patterns that aren’t for teenage girls or make one look pregnant. The added bonus of working with modern patterns is that it makes it easier to work with the new fabrics that keep hitting the market. Another reason to keep working with modern patterns is that sometimes you just need to look nice, but not draw attention. The vintage garments always draw attention and not all of it positive. The question, dear readers, is this: should I change the blog name and address to allow modern and vintage projects or keep the blog as is, with the occasional modern project?
The top is Butterick 4986 in matte jersey and the skirt is Kwik Sew 3287 in cotton calico
