Good afternoon all! Just a quick post to reassure you that I am still here – I’m approaching an(other) uni deadline, so I’m working hard on that/avoiding it, which means blogging and sewing have to take the back seats again.
I did pick up a cute vintage pattern for a bargain on ebay the other day:
And if you’re anything like me, you like the see the back of a pattern envelope as much as the front, so here it is:
Unfortunately, I did miss out on the pattern for this gorgeous dress with lace overskirt and cute jacket:
Even though it’s only a picture or ‘serving suggestion’, I have to admit that the colours and prints on a pattern envelopes still influence and appeal to me – I adore the teal blue on the dress and overskirt. Even though I missed out on this pattern, I do think I could work out how to make it from other patterns I have and a little bit of experimentation. The purse strings are a bit tight at the moment, so I’m only going for patterns if I can get them at bargain prices (the suit above was only £3.70 including postage). Similarly, clothes are only options if they are super-cheap, which is why I missed out on this pretty vintage Ebay find:
Yes, more teal!
Anyway, I’d better get back to uni work like a good girl!
