I recently came across the wonderful site called Colette Patterns which is dedicated to sewing patterns for making reproduction vintage pieces. I may never have the time to whip up one of the gorgeous dresses they have to offer but I did come across a tutorial for a cute faux fur collar.
I've been really into fur collar recently and I know this is something I could pull off. I think it would look great for Christmas dinner or with a cocktail dress for New Years!
These fun necklaces have been in the works for awhile now and they are finally done! All have a brass plated filigree setting that I have painted. Each have a different photo that is sealed with a glossy finish. They all hang from a silver plated ball chain. If you like what you see, check out my shop. More to come!
Tanya is my real name but Atomic Bettie is my 50s pinup girl altar-ego. Lover of all things vintage, fashion, and design. I usually feel the need to craft or stop at my local thrift store. If Martha Stewart and John Waters had a baby, I would be that child.
This blog will be about all those things and more!
