Vintage Patterns!!

I just bought three patterns off Etsy from the store Opals Owl Vintage! The top one is has just the loveliest collar. The next two show how CRAZY for scallops I am.

I cannot wait to receive them. The owner of the store is away till March 24th on vacation so I will have to wait even longer to receive them. But that is okay! I am a very patient person when it comes to ordering things online. Also the shop is located in Seattle so that’s just a hop and skip away from Vancouver! The first two patterns are just one size off from me and the one on the bottom is exactly my size! Perfecto!

In the meantime, I am going to be making a slip for a pink skirt that I have yet to blog about (but soon!). It was the project from my intro to pattern drafting class last term and I quite love how it turned out. But my instructor did not want us to have to deal with lining our skirts and my skirt is made out of a somewhat thin fabric so I’ll have to make a slip for it!

I’ll use this tutorial from Gertie and I will also add a scalloped edge to it using this tutorial (also via Gertie). Can you tell I LOVE scallops?

I am also going to make a nice spring coat for that transitional period from rainy, cool early-Spring and into late-Spring/early-Summer. It is this pattern:

I am making the long coat on the right but not in such a bright pink, I’m going to have to find a light grey coloured fabric. I used to have a grey jacket from Urban Behaviour that I bought for $10 which I’ve worn to heck. The fabric is cheap so the dye has been fading in many areas. I find a light grey jacket/coat works really well with my wardrobe and style.

That’s all for now! Can you tell I’m excited for my future projects now that my classes are almost done?
