I didn’t think I was that easily led. But clearly I’m a pushover. I have been inspired beyond belief by festivals, blogs and work colleagues and now I’m dreaming, 24/7 of owning an entirely handmade wardrobe, based on vintage inspired clothes.
I think I am kidding myself everso slightly if I think my dressmaking can keep up with my pattern buying (and full time job . . . and children!) but a girl can dream and wish, and you know what they say about wishing hard enough!
These are my recent buys. And I think you might be inclined to believe why I couldn’t leave these beauties unsold!
The 40s dress below intrigues me most and I can’t wait to get onto the muslin. I’m hoping that waist piece with the waist tie will be as flattering in real life as the drawing portrays.
Has anyone had the pleasure of running any of these up yet? Any tips, warnings and encouragement would be greatly appreciated!
