Hello, I my name is Christina. I adore sewing, knitting, crochet, jewelry making and all kinds of creative activities. Like many people who love to express their creativity, I want to do it all. I love sewing from vintage or vintage-inspired patterns. I find the styles of the 1940s Swing era and 1950s Rockabilly/Mad Men era to be very kind to the curvy female figure, celebrating womanliness. Sewing from patterns produced in the 1940s has proved challenging. The patterns are not printed, only notched, and the sewing instructions can be at the same time highly complex and detailed and yet vague and obscure, a very strange and sometimes frustrating combination. But wow, the end result is so worth it!

But for now, it’s time to take a break for the Perfect Martini.
