I have had a lucky streak with vintage patterns over the past week. I picked this gorgeous one up at my local oppy for 50 cents! It is printed in size 2 so is a little too big for Juliette now but I couldn't resist getting some pics of her in it. Plan on wrapping it up for her for christmas (eighteen month olds don't have very good long term memories!).
The fabric is from the Everything but the kitchen sink range and was also a bargain...I visited Darn Cheap Fabrics in Heidelberg last week after my ultrasound and found this sunny yellow print. I planned on buying 20 cm for my baby quilt at $7 per metre. The woman pulled the fabric off the end of the roll and gave me what was left (about a 1.2 metres) for the price of 20cm - about $1.50!! So all up this gorgeous dress cost $2.00 (plus a lot of time - pattern had no instructions and needed some adjusting). Plus I still have plenty of leftovers to feature in the baby quilt and other little projects.
My next sewing project is from another vintage pattern I borrowed from my lovely next door neighbour. It's about thirty years old. Stay tuned...
I'm joining up today with Her Library Adventures to share my vintage finds.
