For the non-knitters out there, Startitus is ‘when you feel the need to start lots of projects at the same time, even though you know that’s a stupid thing to do’. Thanks Haldechick.
But then I see something pretty, and have to make it right now! I’m really fighting the startitus.
Instead of starting a new sewing project last night (possibly Rooibos or Ceylon from Colette) I unpicked a couple of dresses, ready to take in so I can actually wear them this summer.
Two wearable dresses, in one night!
The photos are adorable, not to mention the quantity of patterns in the book. I got it from a vintage shop on south King St Newtown for a really good price (considering that I just saw three go for over $50 on Ebay, $12 was a good price).
The cover is cardboard which is pretty unusual in itself, but it means the outside is not in the greatest of condition. Maybe if I share some photos you might understand!
