This past weekend I scored two Designer Vintage Vogue Patterns:
This funky Valentino from 1970:
And a Chester Weinberg Vogue Americana from 1969:
They are both in great shape and complete and I want to re-sell them. My mom and I have been accumulating a huge vintage pattern stash, but have been procrastinating getting them online to sell. Also, we are both pack rats so its really difficult to give them up!
I kind of want to keep the Valentino pattern....sigh...
On the sewing front, I have completed another Victoria Jones Hawaiian shirt for my dad except for the buttons and button holes. I will be finishing it today and taking pictures. I'm also going to start drafting a dirdl skirt for myself which should be very easy, quick, and rewarding. I really need solid color skirts. I also have to alter a dress I made for my Pattern Drafting class final. It fits my sister pretty well and just needs to be taken in at the shoulders. Also have to make her a couple of shirts for her birthday.
Tomorrow I am meeting up with one of my classmates to work on our personal slopers. The first time around my measurements were not taken very accurately so I need to start from scratch.
I'll post some pics as soon as I can!
