Ever buy vintage? I can't say I ever have before, but check these out!
My mom called me about the one on the left that she found among some boxes. I've been wanting to make some matching belts for dresses but couldn't find the kits anywhere. Well after she called, I did a search on Ebay and found an auction for the other two on the right. With shipping they were under $10 for both. I'm pretty excited about these!
And look what else the postman delivered today - my new fabrics from Denverfabrics.com. They just put up a whole slew of ITY jersey knits for $4.45/yard.
The red & white polka dots is for Butterick 5318, view A. The black and white with royal blue print is for NewLook 6429, view A. This will be for winter and I plan to pair it with tall black boots.
The aqua and brown print I was hoping to use for the upcoming wardrobe contest at Patternreview.com, but it does not match the fabric for skirt #3. Oh well, I still like it. I planning to make some winter tops with both of these. No definite pattern selection yet.
I'm planning NewLook 6429 (again) for this black and white swirl print, view E. The collar and waist tie will be done in the white.
Still plugging away on McCall's 5859. The sleeves are extremely poofy!!! So much so that I'm having to borrow a sleeve from another pattern and recut them. But other than that I'm having no problems with it. Hopefully it will be completed by Saturday. Have a great weekend, y'all!
