Just stumpled over this video. The channel was posted on the Historical Sewing Fortnightly facebook page by a great costumer named Annette. The name of the channel is VintageFashion and can befound at this link.
I will be sharing some other videos from them and others when i find a project the videos suits.
Today I wanna share some photos from my grandfathers photo album. There is a lot of my Grandmother, who is now dead. But no sad eyes, I never had the chance to meet her properly. She died when I was 1 year old.
Perhaps my great great grand parents. 1904

Finally i found time to make some of the things I love the most. Sewing..
Remember that hat from H&M? I’ts finished now!
I decorated it with a feather, velvet fabric and a beaded flower. I absolutely love it! Hopefully it will fit together with the planned flapper dress.
This was also a part of the Historical Sew Fortnightly – Challenge #9 – Flora and Fauna
Oh! The exams are over me. I actually promised myself not to do any creative stuff while I’m reading for the exams. But, but, but… I bought a new hat. This hat is from H&M and I think that it’ll be the prefect flapper hat with some alterations. Don’t you?

I’ve just said yes to be a part of a historical sewing challenge. I don’t think i’m getting to much done and need some inspiration to my projects.
The communities is called The Historical Sewing Fortnightly and can be found on facebook. Just follow my link.
The first Challenge I’ve enrolled myself in is the so called Squares, Rectangles and triangles.
So I sad down and thought. Looked in my old costume guide. And then it came to me. A flapper dress! I haven’t done any costumes from the modern period yet and this was my change to finally do so. I have a bunch of pale yellow chiffon fabric laying around and a pattern for the chemise to go under. I can fell this. So good!
I’s going to fell good to have my Toyota sewing machine up running again.
Here is some of photos for inspiration:
