Vintage Sewing

Hey Ladies!

February 13, 2009

I have been working on some fun projects using retro styled fabrics. The first is a tote using some new fabrics that have great retro appeal.

Orange for summer!

Then I am working on a dress using this japanese fabric that has a real retro vibe to it as well. I just need to put the binding on the armholes. Then I’ll get hubby to take a picture of me wearing it.

I am off now to pick up a big box of vintage patterns from my local antiques shop. They hold all the vintage patterns for me…love that! I’ll come back next week and share some images of my vintage pattern stash.

Happy Valentine’s Weekend to you all!
