I have been on a fabric jag for a while. Especially vintage rayon from the 40s. Then I realized that 50s cotton is so pretty, and even 80s big flowery prints are fun. So I have a whole assortment of fabric that eventually I am going to make a bunch of things out of, like skirts, tops, dresses, you name it.
Then, I had to start collecting vintage patterns to go with the vintage fabric. I even found a pattern on Ebay that my sister Kathy and I both sewed in the 70s.
Finally, I got a ton of bias tape, because I like the colors, and also because it's easier than cutting out facing.
Why is it so much more fun to buy the patterns and fabric than it is to sew? I guess that's how I ended up with so much beautiful untouched fabric. Even if I don't sew it all, I just like LOOKING at it, and folding and re-folding it. They just don't make stuff like this anymore.
So far I have made several dresses and skirts, but they are all summery, so I will have to wait till Fall and Winter are over to bring them out.
