What an amazing week!
My friend Armelle let me look into her treasure box of French vintage patterns and I almost fainted. This one is dated 1936 and is for a "combinaison", a slip if you will. I love that all the instructions are on the enveloppe. It's brand new, uncut and I wanted to wear gloves while holding it.
Though not quite the same period, I think it would be a great undergarment for Cathy's new dress!
For myself, I borrowed this one, from Modes & Travaux. I love the collar and I'll be making a muslin with my new €1,50/m off white cotton fabric I bought at IKEA yesterday. I think the combination of princess seams - darts will be tricky to fit properly.
Now look what have you here? A film on the pattern. It's so quaint.
In other news, the His & His pyjama pants shipped yesterday. That was the funniest bit of sewing I've ever made, the first time sewing for my brother and can't wait to go to the pyjama party!
The cute C&W vest I made with leftover fabric from the Kenzo for my neighboor's poney club party was a great success.
And, last but not least, this Savage Chickens sticky note made me laugh and wish it was that easy!
