I got a present in the mail!
Yay! Thank you, Peter! This is, of course, the pattern I won from his giveaway a few weeks back. Sweet and super-duper-uber cute.
Of course, now I’m in a quandary. Which yummy 70s pattern to make next? This new one, or this…
What to do, peeps, what to do?
And, I discovered this rather yummy jersey at Value Village yesterday while cruising with my mother-in-law.
It feels like wool, I thought to myself.
But it’s at Value Village. It’s probably some nasty mystery synthetic you really don’t need, I responded.
Then I discovered these little original tags, still on. 100% wool.
It went in the basket.
Originally purchased at Eaton’s Department Store.
This was a Canadian department store that went out of business when I was in high-school… but I have absolutely no recollection of them ever carrying fabric. Any Canadian readers remember when they stopped?
So, despite still not finding my little-girl-coat-fabric, and having to unpick and re-adjust the entire back of my coat (sniffle), life is not entirely bleak.
Now if it would just warm up enough, I could actually justify sewing some of these crazy little dresses.
