Welcome to my sewing blog!

Here we go- I’m a children’s clothing maker who specializes in recreating vintage fashions from 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s. My focus is on clothing for newborns to five-year olds, with an emphasis on fine cottons, linens, silks and soft woolens. I have many vintage patterns from companies like Simplicity and even mail order patterns c. 1930 from the Chicago Tribune my most expensive ($45). In this blog, I will post the course of my clothing design and creations leading up to my big photo event mid June and hopeful success thereafter. I’ve hired a photographer (Heather Crowder http://www.heathercrowder.com/)  of Annapolis to shoot my twin 2-year-old girls and a 5-year-old  wearing my designs in hopes of boosting etsy sales and to produce catalogs. 2 dress changing in downtown Annapolis with 2 two-year olds will surely be a sight.

I also wanted to create this blog to share these long-lost but not forgotten styles and the techniques with you. So many times I googled a sewing technique and it was in fact a blog that gave me direction. If you are interested in my completed items, check them out on my etsy site: msbellesboutique.etsy.com
