|Fabric, buttons, and patterns from the 50s - 70s plus a couple of modern ones.|
|Sewing books, and a pattern pamphlet from 1956.|
What a bounty! And all the patterns are my size! But my favorite thing is the fabric -- it's a vintage piece, probably from the 50s. The bird print is right up my alley. It's 35 inches wide, and there a little more than two yards of it. There isn't enough for a dress, but it will make a fantastic skirt.
And here's a better look at the buttons, and that fabulous rick-rack. I don't have very many vintage buttons, but I find them fascinating. The button cards have a great vintage-y feel, and I'm sure help date the buttons too.
Happy New Year, everyone! I didn't get my dress finished on New Year's Eve (I sew so much faster in my head ...) but hopefully today's the day.
