I have always loved sewing, I can still remember my first foray into dressmaking when I would artistically patch together new barbie outfits from my mums sewing off cuts. Since those early hand stitched days, I have gone on to complete my Bachelor of Fashion Design RMIT where I learnt the skills of pattern making and cutting.
When ever I am hunting though my local opp shops I am thrilled when i find old sewing patterns. I love the fact that somebody, somewhere once used these templates, I wonder what ever happened to these garments?
Here is a pic of some of my recent Children's finds.
I will be posting some Then and Now segments which will show what I have made from these gorgeous old patterns. I hope you like them.
