Spring is now underway! Do you have any Spring fashions you’re in love with or are making? I admit I’ve been a bit scattered lately (as evidenced by the sporadic blog posting these last few weeks!). In sewing and fashion I’m being just as scattered- part of me wants bold and wild prints to make up in snappy dresses and separates from the 1930s and 1940s, sort of like shown in this page from 1939, and part of me wants the softness of lace, ivory, silk, and sheer cotton like from the Edwardian era.
Do you ever have conflicting areas of what inspires you? How do you go about tackling them and keeping your creativeness in check to get projects done? I’ll be posting more things from earlier periods coming up here as I settle into my bigger project, but I also need to finish up an early 40s play suit I started last year, so I’m trying to keep inspired!
In shop news, despite my lack of big posting there have been some hats added to the Etsy store and also a new e-book went up today on the website- from a vintage 50s comic book sewing manual I have that really would be a great jump start for those starting out in vintage sewing, or just fun to have on hand as reference.
Oh yes! I forgot to mention I got my hair permed yesterday! Still a few days left before I can play with a vintage set, but I’ll try to post results here. I was so tired of having my curls fall flat after a day (or less!).
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
