Holy cow, it has been quite a while since I've been here. I have done quite a bit though.
Most recently, I finally found a copy of a vintage pattern I've been coveting for quite some time: Simplicity 5027, from the early 60s. Remarkably it was more or less my size, and after a muslin test-drive and a few adjustments I think I'm ready to cut. I even have the fabric already--a rust batik purchased a year ago for a pattern that I was never happy with. It will be perfect if it ever warms up here (a statement that will certainly sound stupid in a few months when it is 90 degrees and humid).

Oh fun. I have a special interest in sewing with vintage patterns. Can't wait to see how it goes!
