I thought I would have had a steady stream of incoming mail this week to share with you... but it's been very quiet. Worryingly so. I might have to start calling in on all the other farms with the same name as ours, just in case...
I succumbed to another vintage Betsey Johnson pattern from the 1970's. I stumbled upon a new-to-me sewing blogger who had made these trousers, and was smitten. Yes, they are absolutely shoooge! But we all know how I feel about wide-legged trousers ... and this pattern was very cheap.
Um, yes, they are only a teen size 7, but I reckon it won't take much to make them a little wider round the hip given the yardage already involved in those front pleats! I have some brown and lilac pinstripe moleskin in the stash, ready and waiting for some 70's madness : )
I also snapped up a copy of the latest Colette blouse pattern, Jasmine. That was over a week ago. I have previously bought things from the same UK e-tailer and they arrived the next day. Hmmm. But I am not going to get anxious about it. Even though I wanted to make this last weekend!
I am going to use the teal and brown plaid in the centre of this picture, cut on the cross. That pintuck blouse was never going to work out.
