pics from the market
Vintage barges!
Beautiful "how to book" on sewing, because it was done in the 40's it shows a lot of techniques that have changed and that we all to keen sewers tend to miss then wounder why things don't sit quiet right.

These cups i feel in love with the moment i spotted them. i had my heart set on an similar 8pc sett but they where around $180 and obviously far out of my price range!!!! I got them from a "dear prudence" new lil vintage shop on Sturt Street.

And naturally i am always on the look for patterns! this lovey one was found on e-bay. I hope o make this in a nice light tweed. (the one with the collar and sleeves)

On a different note this week has been my first week at Uni! my classes are made of a great range of people from all walks of life witch makes for really good discussion.
