Seeing as though my last post was about me giving in to temptation, I thought I'd continue on a similar path.
This weekend, there was a 40% off sale at Spotlight and with such a generous discount, how could I say no. Who am I kidding? I didn't even give it a second thought. I did plan ahead however and made sure I left the house armed with a shopping list. My main aim was stock up on some winter weight fabric and buy some of the more expensive wools which I wouldn't even dare look at, let alone cut. And I must say, mission accomplished!
Here are a couple of ideas I have for my purchases:
This 1940s Vogue jacket pattern has been wanting to be made for some time, but I've never found the right fabric. I don't think this red & black wool is perfect but it will give the jacket a bit of a 'Pendleton' look which I'm quite keen on.
There was still at least half the bolt left of the navy wool-blend fabric I used for my 1950s pants, so I bought myself another 3 metres with this fabulous 1930s dress in mind. Knowing how beautifully it falls, I think it will make a lovely skirt and I'm picturing red piping and buttons for the bodice detail. Classy!
When I spied this awesome purple & grey knit jersey on the racks, I snatched it up quick smart. This 1930s pinafore is gonna rock so hard this winter, I can hardly wait to get started!
Hmmm, where to begin...?
Looks nice. I've really been loving navy blue lately. We've just gone into Spring and Summer is quickly approaching us, but I love Navy for fall/winter.ReplyDelete
Just wanted to let you know that I nominated your Blog for a Liebster Blog award!
Love this combo, and may try similar side pleats myself - thanks for the marvelous example! Enjoyed your comment re hair as well. Have been trying for a similar shade myself, but with no success thus far. Yours is quite perfect, imho!ReplyDelete
