Vintage Fabric Finds

I can’t go on Etsy unless I know I have hours to spend. It’s an endless treasure chest of pretty homemade and vintage goodies, especially vintage fabric! Up till now, all I’ve been doing is admiring a long list of favourites I dream of owning.

But now, a little section of my favourites list is in the mail my fabric stash as we speak! From this fantastic seller comes the following delightful pieces:

Isn’t this so pretty? Four yards too, think of the pink floral possibilities!

This cool brown paisley has pink touches too, maybe for a shirtdress? Maybe a sundress with (subtle) pink trim? This one that Erica made, I already know it’s cute… and I could use pink buttons to highlight the paisley details!

And this was the one that sealed the deal:

Vintage floral linen – so perfect for the Vogue 1174 I ordered here! How gorgeous will it be in a little strapless number?

She still has a number of pretty pieces for sale, and new items keep appearing in her store every time I check. I can’t own them all (or can I?) so I’m sharing the love with you.

So there’s a few more projects on my to-do list now! So much sewing, so little time…

Plus, I have not forgotten everything I promised recently: bound buttonhole tutorials, pictures of what’s inside pound-of-button bags, and my weekend loot from Button Button and Dressew. All coming soon!

Ooh and I just became the newest member of Sew Retro – yay! Now, to finish a vintage sewing project so I can share my first retro creation…

    Tasia, thanks a lot for bringing this to my attention. The fabrics that you bought and they carry are gorgeous and quite affordable. Your fabric taste is impeccable :)

    Tasia,
    I’m very interested in your summer picnic dress. I’m writing a book and I had envisioned just that dress in my mind but I have a question if you wouldn’t mind helping me. My question is about the fabric, for 1960 what material would it really have been made from? Taffeta seems like it might have been expensive but cotton too soft, yeah I know I have no idea what I’m talking about but I know you do. Please forgive me if this is an intrusion of any kind but I really want to have my facts straight for the book. Have a great day.

    Tony
