Thanks for dropping my blog Pearls and Petticoats, I am so glad you are here!
If you are looking to improve your homemaking skills and have a love for all things retro, you found the right place.
My name is April and I started my housewife life in 2006 and always liked things homemade and old-fashioned. I am a Jesus loving, Disney obsessed, rockabilly, Susie Homemaker wanna-be.
I am not a perfect homemaker, but I am real.
Sometimes the smoke alarm goes off and sometimes I make something that knocks the socks off my hubby! I believe recipes and family traditions are passed down in the kitchen between loved ones. My family loves finding old recipes to revive and new ones that become traditions. Learn to make the meals that make your house a home, whether they are vintage recipes or halfway homemade with Pillsbury.
Pearls, petticoats, victory rolls, fascinators, bowties, and saddle shoes. All the things I love about vintage fashion. The vintage rockabilly lifestyle is something new I am learning, so join me on the journey of finding my “Darlin’ Style”. I want you to find yours too! Since I am a plus-sized doll, a lot of the clothing designs I make on this blog will be self-drafted. Honestly though, retro fashion looks amazing on us bigger girls!
Why buy it when you can make it? That is one of my favorite sayings. I love creating jewelry, designing dresses (learn along with me), and creating amazing DIY’s for everything in my home. I create everything on a shoestring budget too!
