Summer Essential Sew-Along: Accessorizing
So far in the SESA I have only published pictures of actual garments. But, I have also been making some accessories to match my items, so I thought I´d show them to you all at the same time.
First, there´s the sailboat belt:
In my home town there are still some fabric stores that is quite old- school, where you can find notions from three decades ago. These sailboats are obvious evidence of this. I love that they have a surprising yellow color, not the traditional red-white-blue! I crocheted around a thrifted belt buckle using single crochet.
Second, I give you the Agatha Christie…
I´m actually not quite sure of what it is that I have made, but it is a crocheted hat-like item, that I can wear whenever I´m in the mood for some 40ies style. I got the inspiration from an episode from the TV-series about Miss Marple. Any suggestions to what this thing is called?
Third there is the petticoat.
Yey! A real one. I had a fake one (just some tulle attached to a skirt), but for the Vogue Vintage dress I´m sewing up, I needed a proper one.
I used this and this tutorial from the talented Sugardale, and it turned out great!
I took some shots of it, and some of how one simple skirt gets some wa-wa-woom using the petticoat underneath.
As I mentioned in this post, it´s amazing how a simple undergarment can add so much to a whole outfit. Love it!
Wow! These are all wonderful. You’ve inspired me to try making a belt.
Wow! These are so fun! I’m impressed with how much oomph that petticoat gives your skirt 🙂
Thanks! Go for it Stacy! 🙂
[…] And they fit into my stash busting challenge perfectly. The tulle is leftover scraps from my tulle petticoat I made back in […]
