Ok, lets face it, it’s not exactly an earth shattering problem, but it’s a problem for me, nontheless. I love looking through my pretty vintage patterns, and I love adding to the collection even more! This week I managed to get my sticky paws on 25 new patterns, I must photograph them and show them off! 🙂 But that means more to make up! I have identified these cuties, and actually managed to get fabric that I think will make up really well too, but I simply cannot decide where to start. Unfortunately vintage patterns are not the only items in my “MAKE ME NOW!!” queue. So these are my ideas…
I love the Irish linen I’ve chosen for this dress, I hope there’ll be enough for the full skirt version of this fabulous dress.
I’d bought this pretty rose print cotton ages ago, thinking it would be perfect for a vintage blouse, so I’m paring it with View 1 of this 1940s pattern.
This LeRoy pattern is definitely one of my favourites, and I know the pleated skirt will look fantastic in this brown embroidered satin – again, I just hope there’s enough fabric! Then again, the sheath would look just as fine.
I’ve loved these patterns for ages, and when I bought this vintage cotton floral print, I immediately thought of the dress on the right, Simplicity 4284, maybe with contrast cuffs & collar. There is a lot of this fabric, so hopefully with the leftovers I will manage either the skirt or top of Simplicity 4340. The piece I cannot make in the floral can be made in a solid colour.
I loved this cotton print when I bought it, and had in mind a sleeveless blouse. So I may make version 2, but if there’s enough for sleeves, I see version 3 calling my name!
Isn’t this pattern just gorgeous?? I’ve been wanting a suitable fabric to use for the bow neck versions for ages, so when I found this olive floral silk in a charity shop – 5m for £3!!! – I had to have it. I know it will make this an even more glamourous blouse, if I can get round to making it up!
I know, you’ve seen this before… And despite how much I love the pattern and the birdie fabric, I still haven’t got round to cutting and making!! I hope that shows I am busy with other makes, not that I am beset with indecision! 🙂
I must make something, I must make something.. I must START something.
Please say I’m not alone in this.
