I've been on a sewing kick lately. Well, more than I usually am! I was surfing the internet tonight looking for some patterns when I stumbled across this site, Decades of Style. I'm in hog heaven, as I'm sure you all know. This place has gorgeous patterns from the 1900's to the 1950's up to a bust size of 46! I know, I was surprised too, but believe it, honey! These are reproduction patterns, mind you so they are easier to follow than most vintage ones. Get out your needles and thread, girls!
For those of you who don't know how to sew but want to learn, I recommend trying your hand at an apron. A simple cotton (like the kind used for quilts) is one of the best to begin with. The One-yard bias cut flapper apron here is a good start. Simplicity also has great vintage apron patterns that you can buy at your local fabric store. If any of you non-sewing gals have a sewing success, let me know so I can send my kudos! Be careful, though- sewing is very addictive!
