porshesplace is taking a short break

This skirt was exactly what I ordered, the seller was wonderfully responsive and changed the cut from a full circle to more of a half circle as I requested. However, unless your hips and waist are close to the same size, the transition from non-stretchy tweed to the elastic band is too much fabric and looks unflattering. The skirt would look so much better with a zipper and waistband to emphasize the narrowest part of the waist before flaring out. I'm taking mine to a local tailor to try to salvage it, but I am disappointed with the design.

Honestly, it is one of my favorite skirts of all time. The pockets are perfect. The design is gorgeous. Chatting wtih Femia about sizing, colours, design was an absolutely pleasure. I cannot say enough about how amazing and brilliant this skirt is. Did buy three more.

My apologies for the late review. Wonderful work--beautifully finished, carefully made, a fun polka-dot lining, and pockets! My 3rd skirt from this seamstress--perfect fit, unique, always compliments.

Actually, when I saw your message, I decided to buy one of the coats. "I have received a closet full of vintage coats from a dear friend who in turn saved them from her Mother. My friend is trying to raise money because her husband lost his job due to CoVid and I am trying to help in my very small way." Due to the pandemic, everyone is having financial and emotional difficulties. Especially, I want to support my favourite vintage shops. I will take good care of the blue coat.

It's a bit tight, but that's because I'm a bit too big for the coat after holiday feasts. It is true to size at a 10-14. Currently I'm a 16-18. The seller was very truthful about what she was selling. She reported moth holes, and there were moth holes. So you get exactly what she describes the item to be. Very honest seller. Would buy again from her.
Oh what a petticoat can do!
Sadly I didn't discover petticoats till I was all grown up. All those missed years of colorful, happy fun! Have you tried one yet? They are lovely things - instantly creating a feeling that you must twirl and spin. A happy feeling.
I wanted to share that feeling with every lady I could reach.
Welcome to Porshes Place - my tiny little corner of the Etsy world.
I am first and foremost a family lady. But, as my Husband likes to teasingly remind me, that is followed closely (sometimes too closely!) by a passionate love for fabric, patterns, sewing machines, books and design magazines. My petticoat and skirt ideas generally start as sketches and side notes in the books I am reading, the magazines I am browsing or the catalogs I am scouring over. From there, I hunt down the fabric that I think will best communicate my idea in the flesh. Then I get to work.
Listening to Agatha Christie or Jane Austen while I sew, I can lose myself for hours in my workshop - stitching and fitting my new creation on my ever-willing mannequin. Each piece is unique in design. Practical in nature too - I love to add pockets wherever I can! Added to this is my perfectionist nature - a real bonus for a Boutique owner. I never miss an opportunity to take notice of the details in my designs. They add a little something I think.
Please check back each season for a few new pieces that can introduce a little whimsy to your wardrobe. I will keep making beautiful and ethereal pieces that will spark your imagination, fuel your smile and above all make you feel oh-so-pretty!
Being a girl is Wonderful!
I always appreciate my Mom - for teaching me not just how to sew when I was a little girl... but how to love it! And I can't forget my Dad showing me how much fun it is to create. Whether it was wood shop or sketching. Now it all comes together.
Heidi is my only sibling and also a mother of 5. She crochets, knits, dog-sits, cleans constantly, eats vegan and takes pictures obsessively. Her cameras and lenses I believe cost more than my truck. Perfect person to take my shop photos!
My Mom... an extremely talented seamstress and a great model too! She has worked with me full time in the past and now on an as-needed basis. She's pretty amazing and a whole lot of fun!
My dear friend Ashley (formerly an Etsy shop owner in her own right) is now my petticoat assistant. Helping me out when orders get a bit overwhelming and doing the tedious, but necessary job of gathering 100's of yards of tulle. Love her!
