I swear I wasn’t intentionally fishing for compliments, but they really did make me feel better about my new hair-do. So Thanks!!!!!! I really appreciate this community of lovelies. I feel like our little corner of the internet is the only one devoid of trolls and nastiness. You’ll are sweethearts.
I thought I’d share some eye candy in the form of vintage patterns recently acquired for only 50 cents each. If you’re in the Portland area and remotely interested in *anything* crafty head to Scrap! You’ll love it, I promise.
My absolute favorite pattern, is also coincidentally, the oldest one of the bunch. It’s the top right pattern, a swim suit pattern from 1940. It’s amazing to think I might make something over 70 years after it was first made. My great-grandmother and I could theoretically share a hand-made wardrobe. We’re all connected to each other aren’t we? I also love the shirtwaist Hollywood Patterns dress. It also won’t require any grading as it’s my size. Bonus!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. I’ll be holed up in my bedroom making Christmas presents.
