  3. My favorite era is probably the 1930's, but they're hard to find...second runner up is the fifties.

    I want to use lace to make a lace ombre dress like I saw on the Sew Weekly.

  6. I'm a fan of the tailored 40's and early 50's, probably because they're also flattering on my body. :)
    Some of that lace would be perfect for a heirloom apron I've been piecing together for a while now. Hoping to be done with it in the next few months.

  9. I adore the flowy dresses and tops from the 70's. So far, I have used lace to trim some blouses. I have even used it as a sort of binding on armholes. Super adorable and unique!

  14. I *love* lace, I use it in dress making all the time.

    I like the fashion from the 40s. I like 50s style dresses too, but I have a preference for the less poofy skirts for the 40s era dresses. :)

  15. I have fashion ADD. You are just as likely to find a vintage 50's house wife dress in my closet as you are to find a 1980's hot pink punk prom dress. My favourite..ahh too hard. But my favourite way to use lace is with lolita clothing and accessories.

  18. I love 50s fashion, and the lines of 70s fashion but not the colors! I like lace as a pretty thing just for me in the hem of a dress, and I also love the way Sarai (Colette Patterns) used lace in the neckline of the blouse she made for the Common Thread Challenge over at Sew Weekly (http://www.sewweekly.com/2011/03/a-common-thread-the-daring-secretary-blouse-by-sarai.html)

  23. I really like the 1950s-early 1960s--it's a silhouette that fits my curves!

    As for lace, I once saw this black dress that was made entirely out of lace sewn together and backed with crepe satin or some other material. It was BEAUTIFUL and delicate but very bold. I'd love to try something on a smaller scale, like an Edwardian inspired blouse or maybe a pencil skirt.

  38. I'm really bad with time periods and pretty much go back and forth with styles I'm into. Right now I'd say the 50's. I like using lace in different ways. as a little piece inside a purse, sewn as a zipper pull, they make beautiful texture in many ways.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have a thing for the 30s, but I am also nostalgic for the goofy stuff we wore as kids in the 70s. I don't use lace much, but I'm going to go look at your ideas right now. Merry Christmas!

  65. I think I'm a fan of the 50's style. As an intermediate/advanced seamstress, I am embarrassed to say I haven't used lace! But once project I wanted to do was a garment made of stretchy lace with an underfabric. One day... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  66. cute blog! The styles of the 40's are my favorite. I don't use lace a ton, but I do occasionally use it when I'm sewing for my nieces. I'm also putting some on the new corset I'm making for myself. kbroadd1 -at- gmail -dot- com

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm all about the 1940s fashion, the fitted waist and the straight skirt! That being said, the Butterick coat is AMAZING!!

    I like using lace on hems, mostly because I am lazy and hate hemming, but it also makes things look a schootch more fancy!

    Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  69. Ha, love those crazy patchwork huge pants! I love early 60s - Mary Quant and stuff. Very sweet. Lace I use as trims on cuffs only, so far, but need to start branching out - hey, if Martha Pullen can, so can I, right?
