If we lived in Brooklyn, you might call me and my gentleman friend hipsters. Instead, we live in Harlem; which makes us trendy. What follows is a collection of fine apartment living, where we make do with a 450 sq. foot apartment when we would be happy with a chicken coop in the back and vegetable storage in the root cellar.
Between the two of us, we're interested in cooking, cocktails, sewing, carpentry, antique stores, vacations, fine dining, and exploring NYC and Harlem in particular.

I didn't get around to the Sew Weekly challenge this last week (Musicals) since I've had company last weekend and my mom is visiting this week. So I thought I would take a moment and share my pattern swap partner with you!
I sent her a wonderful 1960s vintage Vogue pattern for a classy wiggle dress with a bolero jacket.
And as an added bonus, I found this beaded collar decoration while I was in the garment district and decided to send it to her along with a challenge. I told her she needed to make an amazing New Years Eve dress for herself, by dropping the neckline of her pattern and using the collar I sent!
