- Do you remember Catherine’s nursery? Well now the nursery for her baby brother James is finished. I wonder if baby James is here yet…
- Here’s how granny sandals became chic (and yes, I want a pair).
- Penelope’s bedroom is so sweet. I love all of the happy yellow!
- If you liked Eleanor’s pillowcase dress, you’re going to like all of Fable’s handmade dresses too.
- I’ve never rocked false eyelashes, but I think maybe I’d like to give it a try. (Have you?)
- Jo’s house is looking good thanks to a little help from Little Green Notebook.
- And speaking of Little Green Notebook, Jenny wants to know if you can have children and still have nice things. (I say yes.)
- Everyone has seen Mila’s daydreams by now, yes? (Go look if you haven’t yet — I’ll wait.) Well here’s an interview with Mila’s mom, Adele.
I love the look of vintage technology. The ability to fix up old electronics however is not among the skills that I possess. Luckily there are plenty of new items that have the same styling as the classic old pieces. Here are four of my current favorites.
Do you have any similar new/old tech pieces in your home? I have three vintage-style phones: a red one in the bedroom (from Pottery Barn), a white one in my office (by Crosley), and a wall-mounted white one in the kitchen (also by Crosley). It’s sort of surprising that I don’t have that pink one though, eh?
I was going to make my own bias tape because Jacinda’s was so cute, but then I hesitated after realizing that it’s probably a huge pain to do without the proper doodad. Twitter confirmed my suspicions.
So I went with the brown bias tape that I already had on hand, and some Amy Butler fabric that I bought for curtains but never used. The dress took me three hours from start to finish, but that is because I am most definitely a novice when it comes to sewing. It would probably only take an hour and a half, maybe two hours, for someone with more experience.
The dress turned out nicely though. It’s so sweet! I’ll probably swap out the long satin ribbon for something a little more practical, but it was pretty for these photos.
If you’d like to make a dress for a little girl but aren’t sure of your sewing abilities, I recommend making a pillowcase dress. The trickiest part was attaching the bias tape to the arm holes, but if you can handle that the rest is easy. And it’s so cute. I want to make a million more.
