I have a problem. I need to just SEW. Also, do you like my fascinator? It is for another collection of items apparently for observation-only: hats.
- More vintage patterns! The first and last two I bought on eBay. The middle one I bought on Etsy. Some of the eBay patterns were only a few dollars but do not expect that as it is probably a rare occurrences! And look at how tiny! I think all mine are 12 or 14 and since 14 has a 24″ waist, I assume 12 has a 22″ waist. I am not that small in the waist, but I do not think making the patterns a little bit larger could be that difficult. I probably need to copy them on sturdier paper, such as packing paper, anyway.
I mentioned in a previous post that I ordered a vintage pattern.Here is the pattern sleeve. I cannot find a date, but the ebay listed stated 1940’s. All the pieces are pre-cut, yay! The pattern is just one (too small) size, but I think I can enlarge it fairly easily.Look at those neckline and waistline details!I bought these 1960’s sterling silver earrings on etsy. They are so elegant. I think I want to wait until I have the proper new outfit with which to wear them. I will also try to polish them with baking soda.
