Favourite blog: Subversive Femme

When you are a curvy girl like me, you hesitate to make vintage patterns because you are never sure how they will look your figure. For many years I have stuck with the 1950s fit and flare because I know they work on my body type.  Then, I found Subversive Femme!  She is a stunning redheaded curvy girl who uses patterns from the 1930s to 1950s and creates stunning reproductions.

For both sewing and knitting inspiration, please follow her on both WordPress and Instagram.

Favourite blog: By Gum By Golly

I am madly in love with By Gum By Golly and not just because of she is a sassy redhead.  Tasha and her partner are living the vintage life to the fullest. If you walked into their home or met them on the street, you would feel like you stepped into a time-warp. Not to mention, I want to make every single project that Tasha makes. You should also follow her on Instagram because she is very active on Instastory.  https://www.instagram.com/bygumbygolly/
