Sip and Sew: 1949 Halter

I had one of the best times in a long time this past weekend with just four girls and our sewing machines!

We had our first official Sip and Sew during which we did a little bit of sewing and a whole lot of gossiping. The circle is comprised of vintage loving girls, like yours truly, who are all set to build our own wardrobe!

Our inaugural meeting was lead by my amazing friend Vanessa who greeted us in style with yummy treats, the cutest 50's glasses for our Arbor Mist (V's favorite) and pre-cut patterns in name labeled envelopes! She is too stinking cute for her own good!

The project was for each gal to create a 1949 halter from a great vintage pattern that our lovely hostess provided. We each customized the pattern to fit our measurements, did a little cutting and then the sewing commenced. Between all of the chatting and re-dos, I am not sure how long it actually took to complete, but I did it!

Finished product. Not too bad if I say so myself. And the best part is that I went home afterwards and knocked another one out in less than an hour and a half!!

As for next month, the date is already selected and so is the pattern. I can't wait for another day with the gals!


  1. Love the blog, great narrative. And, I can't wait until May's Sip'n'Sew either!

  2. Me either!! Pencil skirts for our amazing tops!! That sounds like a perfect pair.
