Retro Skirt

I have made this retro style circle skirt to wear to The Green Man Festival at the weekend. I used ric rac around the bottom to give it a real vintage look.

And to make it even fuller I made a petticoat to go underneath, lovely sheer red cotton fabric with red lace trim.

Vintage sewing table

I was at the Frome Artisan Market at the weekend and I picked up this lovely 1930’s sewing table. The inside is in immaculate condition, the table top is a bit damaged but my hubby is going to repair it. I will post some more pics of it when he has.




The Cutting Edge

We have just had in a range of Fiskar scissors, I think these scissors are te best for dress-making and sewing. My favorites are the pinking shears, I use these a lot for neatening edges and they are particularly good for bunting. The old pair that I have got are so worn out I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair of these Fiskar ones!
