'Memories in pattern and colour'

Monthly Archives: April 2013

I found this little programme for a tiny price of 25p at a local vintage shop. It was the front cover that drew me in, and then as I flicked through the pages I saw some lovely examples of high-end fashion from the time.

It is such a step back in time, and as I flick through the pages I can imagine my self at the theatre, dressed up to the nines in my art deco beaded attire! The adverts are aimed at ladies with money, and really brings back the allure of the luxury of the time! Glorious!

Enjoy!

ImageImageThis must have been my first sewing project in almost years…shame full I know, but due to lack of energy and what not, I just have not been up to much! But me and my mum were in C&H fabrics a few weeks ago when we found sewing patterns were at half price (OMG I know!!! *AMAZING*) and that’s when we found this gem of a pattern! Ive been wanting to make a cute little collar for a while now, and this was a really good pattern to try and ease me back into sewing as I have never been really very good at it.  this project was just perfect to build a little confidence 🙂

So much so, I am attempting my next, in a very very slow manner. I find I am the slowest at sewing, mainly due to the fact i have M.E and have to rest after short amounts of sewing, and then there is the setbacks…oh crumbs I have had so many of these in this current project. If it was not for my amazingly talented mum I would not have got this far! It will be  a miracle if I it get completed. However I am determined!!! I have the completed item in my imagination, and that makes me very happy, so I just have to keep that in mind every time i make a silly mistake! It is a real test of patience, not something I’m used to!

So here is a sneak peek! Any guesses as to what it is?!
