vintage may has come to an end! i had fun, did you have fun? i hope you had fun. this was the first blog series i’ve hosted, and i had no idea what to expect. i was so excited about every guest post that rolled in, every comment, pin, and linkup. i found lots of new blogs, and i was inspired! thanks to everyone (visitors and sewalongers and guest bloggers and especially my co-host jess) who made it happen.
here’s a side-by-side roundup of each day’s guest posts, in case you missed any. craftiness is not optional guests are on the left, skirt as top guests are on the right. click on the project name to take you to the post, and click on the guest’s name to take you to their blog. we did try to schedule our guests to kind of “go together” stylistically, but as i was putting these photos together i was surprised to see just how perfectly each pair lined up! see for yourself…
WEEK ONE GUESTS
WEEK TWO GUESTS
pretty great, eh? such talented ladies, thank you ALL. i love the variety of outfits and how everyone has a slightly different take on “vintage.” to me it’s one of those words that invokes more of a nostalgic feeling rather than a certain specific decade or style, so it was great reading the meaning behind your choices. i also really enjoyed reflecting on how i met each of my guests and what draws me to them. you may have noticed that my intro paragraphs got longer as the days went on, and i think that’s because i both missed writing my own posts and i just got more comfortable talking up their awesomeness!
the week before our guest posts started, jess and i did “inspiration posts” and a few of our own projects, and i did a flickr group round up – you can find that recap here.
and now, a final vintage may flickr group roundup! i can’t even believe how wonderful you guys are, and how many people actually sewed along for vintage may. i am so inspired by you – thank you SO much! here are some of my favorites…
- ROW 1: Blue Popover Sundress, Vintage May PJs, vintage pillowcase tank dress, Smocked Dress
- ROW 2: Vintage-Inspired Baby Dress (Frog Prince), vintage dress (neve), Finale Look, Classic Picnic Shorts
- ROW 3: Mimi’s Suspender Shorts, Alma Jane Dress Back, Vintage Sunsuit, Vintage nightgown
- ROW 4: Cintronille Antonine, doily pockets on Oliver + S lazy days skirt, Kabouterhemd, Feedsack Top
- ROW 5: Peekaboo Bonnet #2, Seersucker Bubble Dress, Oliver+S popover top, Best four year old skirt
finally, i wanted to send a HUGE thanks to jess for asking me to co-host this series with her. it was a truly collaborative effort and i’m so lucky to call her a bloggy friend! jess, you’re great. i’m so excited to find out whether your newest little bun is a boy or a girl! i’m rooting for a boy purely for all the new and exciting sewing projects he would lead to. :)
i hope everyone had a great weekend, and if you discovered my blog through vintage may, welcome! i’ve been sewing a bit during the past couple weeks and i’m excited to share my projects. just know i don’t normally post every day – three weeks of daily posting is a bit exhausting for this working mama! it was totally worth it for such a fun series, though.
thanks again, and i’ll see you soon.
