Jakk and I went op-shopping in Liverpool last week, and found five meters of a border print cotton fabric – with pirates!
We couldn’t figure out if this was vintage, or a modern vintage-inspired print. The ships look mid-century-modern, but the colours seem a bit too contemporary. (One day I shall take a photo of some of the vintage fabrics I’ve found in op-shops).
Have you ever made a dirndl?
I was always a bit put off, thinking they could make a pleasantly plump girl look a bit bigger than she really was – but to heck with, I love them!
Plus dirndls literally take an hour to sew – make a waist band, sew a zip into the skirt fabric to make a large tube, hand pleat fabric to fit waist band – sew.
I’m really happy, as you can probably tell! Plus, my Miss L Fire Bonnies match the orange and blue accents perfectly! (Amazon UK has a lot on sale at the moment if any Aussies are looking for them cheap).
