Vintage Sewing


December 12, 2009

Hi! My name is Monique and I am Original Mischief. I live in Australia (proud Aussie) but am moving to Wisconsin in approx. June 2010 to be married. I met my lovely man on ebay of all places! He was selling vintage fabric… I was buying vintage fabric. We started chatting and here we are!

I have been collecting vintage fabric for about 10 years. I started collecting barkcloth from the 50’s to the 70’s, then polished cotton and have been collecting vintage terry cloth for the past year or so. I have in excess of 200+ terry cloths… none the same. I just adore the feel of them. It takes me back to my childhood of the 60s and 70s.

Anyway, I have an addiction to retro clothing and enjoy finding and making clothing from vintage hippie patterns. I love bell sleeves, I love mutton sleeves, I love bell bottoms!

If you get a moment, please have a look at my flickr ( – I’ve uploaded about a third of my terry cloths. I have to find the time to upload the rest.

My blog is All welcome.

Monique ♥
