My good friends know that cheesecake is my favorite dessert. So I got a good laugh when for my birthday a friend sent me a video of the Muppets singing the Cheesecake song, but today I wanted to share with you Louis Armstrong with Bing Crosby singing the Cheesecake song.
Anyway, I should probably also say something about sewing or vintage items before I close this post. (Though surely Louis Armstrong and Bing Crosby can be classified as fitting in retro culture?)
Well, continuing on the theme of my birthday actually, I received Hollywood Patterns 1059 as a gift from my parents. This became recently became my most wanted pattern. I will have to size it up, but with vintage patterns one can't be picky.
I had first seen the pattern on Edelweiss patterns, but it wasn't until recently that I rediscovered the pattern and remembered how much I loved it. Although when I first saw it on Edelweiss patterns, I couldn't find it anywhere. The nature of vintage patterns being that while they maybe not be that rare or expensive, they come and go from the market in spurts.
This is the first Hollywood pattern in my collection, but I am sure it won't be the last. My collection right now is dominated by Simplicity patterns. I am not sure exactly why, but they do seem rather easy to find.
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.
