Up for grabs. This adorable Cinderella apron pattern put out as a cross promotion for the movie and Penney's in 1950. Even if you don't sew, the artwork alone is eye candy. There are slight tears along the fold lines but is uncut. $16 + shipping. Comment "me" to claim. Completely unrelated, I photographed the pattern on top of the cutting board my husband made from scratch! His first true solo woodworking project (other than the guitar he made during a 2 week class). I post it because I'm incredibly proud of him for making it and finding a hobby that is allowing him to create and find an outlet outside of work and family. #vintagesewing#cinderella#vintagedisney#dapperday2017
I bought this quilt top for a mere $7.50 a couple of weeks ago, and it makes my heart sing-- the economical and tiny piecing of feedsack fabric (did this fabric hold sugar? Flour? Chicken feed?), the lovely hand stitching of every seam, and the cotton string/thread reused from the feed sacks to stitch the squares together. This quilt top reminds me how lucky I am to live in a time/place of abundance, and to be mindful of the waste I create that could be saved and repurposed. #vintagesewing#feedsack#vintagequilt
The construction of this coat is interesting. There are several panels that make up the shoulder, hip and back. The fabric is cotton and has a feel similar to feed-sack cotton. Also the seamstress who made this had bold taste and no concern for matching the pattern😎. #1930fashion#vintagejacket#1930sstyle#vintagefabric#vintagesewing
How are you spending your #Sunday ? Everyone has a hidden talent ... mine is I can sew. This week is #bookweek2017 and in my 7th year making a costume for my guardian daughter Miss M. We decided for her last year we'd go out with a bang... can you guess what I'm making?
Look! A lemon! Also my newly completed dressing gown! Scroll through for a few detail pics. The fabric is a 30s/40s repro cotton, the pattern is from the 1940s. I wanted something to wear around the house of a morning, something swishy and cozy but not overly warm (Bay Area weather is weird). This does the trick! Btw I wanted to make my hair pretty for this photo but ended up with bedhead because that seemed more appropriate. 😳 #vintagesewing#1940sfashion#dressinggown
