|A lovely bolero jacket, cummerbund, and skirt
pattern from the 50s that Brigid got a while ago
that sadly is too small for her, but fits me!
However it is getting a bit on the small side,
but hopefully the roomy seam allowance will
help with that 😉
|A bird’s eye view of the cut out skirt and waistband|
|A pretty purple floral print (30s?) If there were more, I would
definitely make a 30s dress out of this!
|I love this rose print!|
|A nice vintage voile I wanted to share. Too bad there isn’t a few
yards of this for a possible 40s blouse…
I’ve been to a couple of vintage/antique stores that have real printed feed sacks from the 30s that are about 1-1.5 yards a sack, selling for around $5 a piece. I’ve been pretty hesitant on the sort of high price for such a low quantity of fabric; but because of the inspiration from the quilts, maybe next time I’ll get a few. 😉
