Vintage May: Presented by Craftiness is not Optional and skirt as top

Shannon from luvinthemommyhood is a blog friend i so wish lived right next door.  she just seems like the kind of gal you could spend hours sipping tea/wine/coffee/cocoa with and knitting/sewing/chatting while your kids ran around playing together.  she’s just a warm and thoughtful person with a great eye for design and i’m so glad to have her as a vintage may guest today!

you may know Shannon for her beautiful knitting, you may know her for her impeccable sewing (and love of a good topstitch), you may know her for her amazing photography or her honest writing.  i love her for all of it.  she does such a nice job of making everyone feel so welcome on her blog, it’s really great.

today Shannon is sharing a sweet little dress inspired by Sally Draper from Mad Men – i love Mad Men (even though this week’s episode was a bit bizarre – did you see it?) and i LOVE this dress!  it looks like something Em would adore wearing.  head on over to luvinthemommyhood to check it out (and help me encourage her to release a pattern for it!).


eeeep just too cute!  today Jess over at Craftiness is not Optional is previewing a totally adorable pinwheel dress by kojodesigns – those big ol’ flutter sleeves on little Piper Jane are killing me dead.

    You’ve totally captured Shannon with your description! I’m lucky enough to live just a few hours from her and get to visit with her once in awhile. I can tell you, when you’re hanging out with her, time just flies by. We sat and chatted for three hours straight and weren’t anywhere near feeling caught up!

    There is a terrible shortage of pockets in girl’s (and women’s) clothes. Like women can’t carry things around with them or it’ll spoil the line?! Nice to see someone redressing the balance AND keeping it adorable!
