For Christmas my parents had given me two 1930s patterns, one of them being a cute dress with all the fun details that often ascribe that of the 30s. The other was a slip pattern which will come in handy now that I have a few patterns in this era.
It wasn't that long ago that while thrifting, my eyes caught a cute print with enough yardage for a dress. There is no name on the salvage, and the polyester-feeling fabric is of higher quality than that of Wal-mart's, and it's not as heavy as JoAnn's silky prints, so I'm not sure if it's vintage or not.
Some vintage buttons from my stash should help give it a vintage vibe. Since when did Sears sell buttons? Note to self: check with google as soon as this post is finished!
Now if I can find the time to sew, that would be nice... :) It's almost as much fun to plan for something as is the fruition of it.
