Sunday Etsy Faves: All dressed up

Four very different dresses caught my eyes today. The first is a toga dress in blue with a simple ruffle down its front. Simple but striking and blue is so in, so now. I love it!

Penelope James One Shoulder Dress by featherweight

I might not have mentioned this before but green has always been my favorite color. It is rather ironic but I don’t usually wear green as I think it makes me paler than I already am. Yet, I am so in love with the color of this dress. It makes me think of summer in Paris. Aren’t the brown shoes just perfect?

Fleur’s Petal Dress by Nadinoo

I love the print and what looks like piping running down the front of the dress.

Melt the Guns Frock by iheartfink

Finally, a vintage inspired lace dress. Perfectly graceful and pretty. The magic of lace.

Sunday Etsy Faves: Vintage (Inspired) Accessories

Hair clips, rings, earrings, necklaces and bags are just a few of my favorite things. Maybe they are yours too. I love them even more when they have a certain look. A vintage inspired look.

The Great Singapore Sale just started last week and while browsing through etsy today, I was curious what crafters from Singapore were selling and off course I wondered if they were participating in the Great Singapore Sale. While I didn’t see any sale in their shops, I’m glad to have checked them out.  Otherwise, I would not have chanced upon these lovely creations. All vintage inspired and all from Singapore based talents!

Sunday Etsy Faves: Retro Swimsuits

I’m looking for a new swimsuit. My old ones were stretched beyond recognition after my pregnancy. A swimsuit is definitely one of those things I know I wouldn’t be able to sew.

I want a one-piece gear, clearly it must have a retro inspired design and won’t break a bank.  I love these pieces I found on etsy but most of them are beyond my budget. Still, they are super-duper gorgeous, don’t you think?

How cool is that?

Sunday Etsy Faves: Jumpsuits Gaga

I don’t know about you but I’m going gaga over jumpsuits on etsy.  I’ve always love jumpsuits. I think they are so fun, casual and hip to wear on a hot day. Especially if they look like these!

Sunday Etsy Faves: An inspiration to sew

It is so easy to find items that inspire and sometimes distract me a little too much on etsy.

I mentioned how I wanted to do a bow collar blouse yesterday. Now, The Sew Convert is dreaming of sewing these whimsical bow collar dresses for herself and her princess after seeing this japanese sewing book for mum/daughter outfits at pomadour24’s store

Too cute!

What about the gorgeous vintage inspired hand sewn dresses at MichelleTan’s store? If The Sew Convert wasn’t this eager to hone her sewing skills,  she would have snapped  up the Custom 1950s inspired dress and the Jessie dress in a heartbeat! (Check out copyrighted photos at store from link above).

This Brittany Dress and matching sky girl hat at taratothet are simply oozing with vintage coolness!

I am also in love with this vintage scallop edge blouse from clevernettle. I have to make one for myself! Really soon!
