Well, have you been over to Sew Retro yet?? Clever sewers share their vintage and retro sewing projects (yes HEAPS of photos and vintage patterns to drool over… ) share their tips, fabric finds and do giveaways of goodies and treats.
It’s my new favourite place… and I’m inspired to make some dresses I have patterns for, so this week, I sorted through my stashes and discovered that in a new haul of notions from my mum were zips, exactly the colour and length I need for these little numbers!
So here they are…
So the centre dress, close up on the fabric…
This fabric, and the one above were great finds on trademe…. here’s a better photo of the top fabric.
This fabric is very black brocade (but light weight) I think maybe the top pale blue version.
If I have enough fabric (might be a tiny bit short..) I’ll make the long sleeve version, or no sleeve. I love this fabric and have had it for ages.
Can’t wait to make a start on them, and hopefully I’ll have at least one new dress for summer!
