Having more genuine vintage fabric than anyone individual should have I have a creative juices overload so seek the expert guidance of you all dear readers of WeSewRetro!
A new purchase to my collection, this delicious 1950′s crepe is even better in the ‘flesh’. (Purchased here)
Now I do a storm in cushion families BUT I fear I am hemming myself in (see…. everything is sewing based)!
For my up and coming vintage fair
CHOICE 1 : Full Apron …. from a vintage pattern of course
CHOICE 2: A little girls ‘party’ dress, again from a vintage pattern
What do you think? Other ideas are welcome, if I recall without digging it out I have 2m of this oh sew pretty fabric.
As always thank you for your time x
Thank you so very much to you lovelies who commented on my part one of Accidental Field of Poppies in early September post.
You I hope will be pleased to hear, the business woman in me prevailed and not the Mother ….DANGIT that really is a first, I feel liberated
The poppies have been made into a family of cushions and much to my amazement they sold IMMEDIATELY! Didn’t get them to the vintage fair, just a little promo on my blog and facebook and KAZAM….. gone! More than slightly delighted and even more inspired than I was before so a big thank you for your support, encouragement and advice. xxx
Having decided to be a bit more organised than I was over the weekend and truly dear reader that’s not too hard given that I achieved diddly squat due to an overly active creative brain that resulted in total inertia!!
After a good rummage in my drawers I found the vintage pattern I was looking for. After a few modifications to suit I got stuck in and must confess to being more than slightly pleased with the finished article. It will be joining me at Judys Vintage Fair at Spitalfields in November along with my growing stash that I shall be attempting to sell for good old English Pounds
Simple yet gorgeous I think! Hope you agree ?
