Ta da!So, as promised, here is the second piece of mom's handmade 12 piece collection.
Again, this was made with a vintage pattern and a fantastic vintage border print cotton. The fabric has this really beautiful smoky grey/brown background which makes those coral roses pop! Mom fell in love with it as soon as we got it. I don't think it ever saw the shelves.
Remember, we'll be showing you more! So check back soon.
So, motivated by mom's sewing marathon, I decided to start making myself a few things for summer as well. All week I've been picking through magazines and my favorite online stores to find clothes I loved and today I found patterns to match! I'm very excited to go home and sew!
In Tin Thimble news, a very sweet customer of ours came into the shop last week and gave us her Grandmother's handmade lace trims and dickie. They are exceptionally beautiful.
The crocheted dickie
Emma and I were doing the math, and these pieces are definitely over 100 years old. The dickie is crocheted with teeny-tiny thread.
The gorgeous trims
The little trim at the top is tatted and the other three are also crocheted with itty-bitty thread. They're to die for!
