Today I would like to introduce you to my hat collection. I think anyone in the vintage fashion world knows that it is the details such as hat and gloves that make or break a vintage outfit.
So here we are with a newly completed project: a recycled denim shoulder bag.
Knitting and crochet patterns are not strictly sewing, but since this blog is also as much about vintage as well as sewing I will include them here. (Warning, picture heavy post!)
The two pamphlets on the left and right are dated 1947. The Sweater Ensembles book in the middle has a copyright date of 1937. It is absolutely filled with sweater patterns.
I'm back again with an update on how my pattern drafting is going. I have been rather busy posting vintage patterns to my Etsy store, so I haven't made much progress. But the need to have a blog post today certainly helped get more done!
Hey! My first three vintage patterns are posted on Etsy! You can check them out at my Etsy shop. I have lots more yet to be posted, (somewhere near one hundred) so please favorite my shop and check back often for more! I have patterns from the 1940's to the 1970's and everywhere in between yet to be posted. And don't forget that for the next two weeks the 10% off coupon code, TENOFF, is still valid.
My personal pattern collection is growing by leaps and bounds. I recently bought some large lots of vintage patterns off of Ebay. My pattern collection has grown considerably.
I have begun work on my first real sewing pattern. I decided to take the concept of a tiered skirt, and turn it on its head. (Well, sort of)
Just wanted to post a quick reminder that my Etsy shop updated yesterday. So please take a look, and let me know what you think! Also, the coupon code of TENOFF, for 10% off your order is still valid through the end of the month.
So what happens when I go fabric shopping online when I have money in my pocket?...... I end up with 19 yards of fabric on my doorstep. (And, yes, they all fit in that box.)
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
