The last week has been mad crazy busy, I ordered some new fabric from America, and have been trawling the shops for vintage fabrics. There is a great antiques market near me that has an excellent vintage clothes stall. I found some old fifties aprons in really good condition, and the fabrics are so gorgeous. I also got a new pattern book, so have been trying out new patterns. Some of the japanese patterns are really tiny, so I needed to scale them up by a couple of per cent just so that the tops would do up. Also added some moshi-moshi variations, like bias binding at the neck.
Got some gorgeous patterned bias binding from France and some tiny buttons too, only thing is I don't have enough time to make all the things I want to. I will have to make the girls sew faster!!
