Lots of links this week! I actually had a hard time picking out what to include; there were so many great posts out there. But as you’ve probably noticed over time, I try to keep the weekly roundup between 5 and 7 links, since I feel like that’s an easily-digestible number of pages to peruse! Hope you enjoy–there are some fantastic posts to be inspired by and learn from…

  • Sarah posted some intriguing and inspiring images of muslins by the legendary American couturier Charles James.
  • Another thing I love to roast and forgot to add in Friday’s post: garlic!
  • I’m itching to try this beautiful “eternal roll” hairstyle.
  • I love this idea for creating a fabric wall organizer and creating a handy backdrop prop!
  • Tilly discussed the steps to cutting out the correct pattern size.
  • An interesting discussion was sparked over at the Colette Patterns blog on the idea of $400 silk shorts–definitely read the comments!
  • Have you heard about the Google Art Project? I can definitely see myself spending a lot of time here in the coming months…

Have a lovely rest-of-the-weekend!

Am loving the hairdo’s over on The Freelancers Fashion Blog! I’m going to give these a go. Trouble is I can never get them to stay in place. Is there a secret technique for using bobby pins to get the maximum degree of “secureness” out of them?? (Not a word but it should be!)

I tried the eternal roll hairstyle this week! It was pretty easy and cute! Incidentally, I didn’t get any pictures. But I say, go for it! I think it’d look particularly lovely with your hair.

As usual, great links. Love the hairdo. My hair is shorter now but I am going to try it. $400 silk shorts…really? The hook with couture is inspiration. I can see ready-to-wear coming up with adaptations of this style for less than $50 within the next few weeks!

I am so in love with those pretty bowls. *o*

I love the make do and mend and the cupcake arrows! I dare say dropping $400 on shorts would be nothing. Have you ever been to Net-a-porte? I mean people buy $500 headbands from there! lol

I’ve seen that eternal roll hairstyle in old photos- it’s really pretty. Make sure you post a pic if you do it Casey. It would look really sweet done with your hair. I’m now regretting that I had so much cut off at my last haircut (it’s to my shoulders and I have a fringe, not to mention it’s thin…. :( ).

Casey, the “eternal roll” is very elegant, especially for 40s style! I think the fabric wall design was really cool; perfect for matching fabrics and definitely much better than holding them in from of you; stepping back, I’m sure, does much more for the color(s) to the eye appeal. I might try making a rack or two. Thanks for the lovely inspirations.

Thanks for the mention! I adore that hair do – if I’m fiddling with my hair while watching telly or something I roll it up like that, but I’ve never got to the end of the roll or tried pinning it up and wearing it out into society… I must try it. Do please share pics if you try it! I’m so tempted to crop my hair again at the moment, so any styles for mid to long hair that you can share will be great for inspiration for me to keep it long for longer.

I loved reading the comments on the $400 shorts! I can never imagine spending that much on clothes (darn rent). I’m trying that hair roll today :)

I like the hair style and those bowls are pretty!

that eternal roll style does look beautiful and I so would try it too but I have these bangs now . . wonder if it will look weird to go over them instead of include them.
