Welcome to my blog! After going through many name ideas, "mode de lis" ("fashion of Lily") stuck and seemed like the best way to describe what I want this blog to be. :-) I have loved sewing for 12 years; historical clothing first sparked my desire for sewing and has spurred me on to greater heights and been my main interest throughout. I love vintage styles too, and aim to keep my everyday wardrobe inspired by the 1930s-50s. I've enjoyed and learned so much from the online community over the years, and after purely being a consumer I feel like it's time for me to step out and share my work, research, successes, and failures with others. :-) I enjoy dabbling in other crafts and hobbies, so this won't always be strictly a "sewing" blog.
