12 4 09

A little while ago I made this dress from a vintage 50's dress pattern. I lost interest in sewing for a while but now I'm eager to get some new patterns and start making some things to wear!



Here are some of my favourites that I'm thinking of buying and making:


1960s Dress Pattern from Best Vintage Patterns


1950s Dress Pattern from Best Vintage Patterns


1950s Dress Pattern from Moms Patterns


I am also really lusting after this coat from Etsy but unfortunately including the shipping to the UK it's about £60, which I know isn't much for a coat but I'm so skint at the moment! Plus, summer is approaching so I think it might be a bit of a useless purchase... but I want it so badly!! Please pleeeease somebody buy it for me! I will love you forever!

I might have to resort in making something for myself in a similar fabric. I found this pattern (the one on the right) which is sort of similar:

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter tomorrow! My mum is cooking us a BIG turkey dinner!! I can't wait! xxx

I wish I had the patience to make dresses like that. I have a sewing machine but I have not used it in a while x
