vintage worn today A little bit me, a little bit others, a little bit old, a little bit new,maybe a bit of crafting and up-cycling thrown in.
Another amazing charity find. Teamed with my trusty high waist, wide legged linen trousers from @m&s.
Blue and green should never be seen....unless its on me!

Birthday in the house. We are continuing our transition to fabric wrapping. As an emergency measure I had to utilise some shirt sleeves and pyjama bottoms to save on sewing time (it's been a very busy week).

Two layers of chiffon, lining, eight layers of gathered net.....30 mins of steam ironing later, and it's wearable again. Think 80s Come Dancing style for this frou frou number.

Inspired by @britishsewingbee I made a huipil from a free to download pattern @vamuseum. Easy to make but a bit fiddly getting all the ribbons sewn on. If I make another, the head hole will be smaller and I'd make the ribbons narrower over the shoulders.

Rotary cutter. 
My new favourite toy. 
Making fabric scrap twine.

It's a but hard to tell but the keepers are the pile on the left. I will sort through the reject pile for bits that can be used for other projects.

Sometimes, when you get a donation, the packaging brings back just as many memories.
