  1. I was about to comment how much I loved the whole 1987 look and I'd still wear with sneakers- and then I saw what you wrote at the bottom! ;-) I take back nothing. Love love love the long tshirt dress thing. VERY Claudia Kishi (in my mind).

    1. Ha! I love 80s fashion. I still have one of my long knit skirts from 5th grade. I was pretty huge back then, lol, so it still fits me as an adult ;)

  2. Hi fellow Coloradoan!! I live in Colorado Springs and have been sewing since I was 14 (1963). I love vintage clothing including hats. Saw a hat post on pinterest (Spring Begins w/A New Hat)attributed to your blog. So ended up here. So sorry about your awful year! Hope 2016 is soooo much better!

  3. Wow, liking that 1984 pattern you featured....wore the heck out of the "Safari look" when it first came in (well when it first came "in" for me *lol*). Oh, and I'm now a follower of you on Pinterest...gah! Sounds like stalking or something, sheesh! :)
