All sewn up

Sometimes you can't find what you want in the stores when you are looking at the vintage styles quiet simply because pieces get lost, damaged etc. This is when it may be time to drag out the old sewing machine or head to your nearest seamstress.

But this also brings up the issue of what to make it from and not all fabric stores have what you want. This is where Retro Age Fabrics comes in, a super cool online store that stocks great vintage material for all your sewing needs.

So next find the pattern....i have managed to pick up some great ones from op shops, markets and even the re-release of patterns by such fashion houses as Vogue from Spotlight.

As soon as I get a piece a finished I will post it up here (assuming it looks ok). So keep your eyes peeled for a gem in that old collection of papers and fabrics in stores. Happy sewing!
