I’m so thrilled to present the most perfectly macabre Morticia Gown. If you’re anything like me, you think that Carolyn Jones in the original Addams Family was the epitome of dark glamour. Perfect for nights of Halloween mischief (or every day for you goths out there!) we’ve expanded the Bryant Gown into something perfectly morbid.
Circle skirts were staples of ‘50s fashion, and we know you’ll love this versatile and feminine piece. Our free circle skirt pattern has the perfect vintage length, side seam pockets, a beautiful lapped zipper, and waistband with hook-and-bar closure. It’s a great beginner project, but also works great as an essential staple for more advanced sewists. (Who doesn’t need one in every color in their wardrobe?)
I’ve been dying to bring you the launch of our first ever Halloween Extravaganza –– that’s thirteen days of sweet and spooky sewing delights. Check back here regularly for your daily trick… or treat!

Our current size range of sizes 2-20 with separate A-H cup sizes goes through painstaking testing to make sure that it fits every size in the chart beautifully. To serve even more vintage sewing enthusiasts, we have now created a new size range, in sizes 18-34 with cup sizes A-H. This new range will go up to a 64 inch bust, 56 inch waist and 64 inch hip.
From a garden party to a rustic getaway, our Scout Dress is an essential wardrobe staple for the fashionable camper and sewist.
