So I bought a jacket pattern recently, from the Cupcake Goddess herself! You might know her – a red-headed seamstress with a love of colour and fine fabrics?
A while back, she mentioned listing a bunch of vintage patterns for sale, including this cute little 70’s jacket, and I couldn’t help picking it up for myself. (Before the layoff, of course! This was my very last online purchase.)
Cute, no? Wide collar and lapels, slightly fitted and flared silhouette, a longer body length – and it comes with the bell-bottom pants as well! I’m sure I have something in the stash that will work for this jacket.
And, the best part – guess what was surprisingly included in the package!?
A Cupcake Goddess seam roll! Oh how I have wanted one of these… it was even on my Christmas wishlist! It’s quite possibly the cutest piece of sewing equipment ever.
I am such a happy camper – I wanted one of these so much! It will come in handy when I get to pressing Mr Sewaholic’s shirt, as well as just about anything with a sleeve. Sunni saw that I wanted one for Christmas and because we’ve been chatting via email (and she’s that awesome), sent me one with my Etsy purchase! I’m a lucky, lucky girl.
Did you know the wool side is for pressing on low heat, while the cotton side is for pressing on high heat? When it arrived there was a little note attached to the seam roll. So helpful!It comes with a little refill bag of sawdust, in case you don’t have any on hand.
I always love picking up parcels from the post office, but this was the best mail day ever! What a lovely surprise and a thoughtful early Christmas gift. Thank you Sunni, I’ll put it to good use!
