Free Image Friday – Vogue Swimsuit Model

When I say “swimsuit model” this lovely lady doesn’t really spring to mind. But, back in the early 1920’s a head-to-toe wool suit, bathing cap and apparently, matching cape was all the rage for beach living. To me, it just looks hot and heavy! I just don’t see this style coming back in fashion anytime […]


Free Image Friday – Sunbathers

Don’t you wonder about the people in vintage photographs? Who were these ladies, in their fun stripe and polka dot bikinis? Were they on vacation or a local beach?

Passion for Fashion: Contemporary Kimono

When we were designing the Contemporary Kimono pattern, I wanted to make a simple jacket that would work for all occasions – dressy or casual – a simple, stylish jacket to become a wardrobe staple. We created an everyday jacket out of my Fire Red Crossroads Denim – though, we added a little extra oomph […]
