These are my first 1930's sewing patterns. I bought them just because I wanted them, no plan, but after a week in my care (and in my mind) it's beginning to become clear what I want to make from them.
The dress-pattern will become a dress. Simple!
I intend to make the short sleeved version in a black/deep blue viscose that I just couldn't not buy, it was a case of me holding it and not wanting to let it go until I realised there was no option but to buy enough for a dress!
I'm not sure, but I think it's a designer remnant, I saw a documentary about Victor Borgen (don't ask me why...) and his daughter wore a pretty dress in exactily the same material. Funny!
I hope it won't be too much (I love simplicity, at least on me).
The second pattern is going to become the base for a knitted wool cardigan that I intend to make. I bought a Prada 100%wool-knit remnant (in black) that I've made a dress from (I'll post pictures). I had planned to make a nice, warm cardigan with the rest of it, but didn't have a clue about the design, until I thought of this pattern.
I'm going to use the long puffy sleeve and the tunic body, but I'll shorten it to just below hip-level to avoid the coat-look (don't like that on me! Unless it IS a coat of course!). I may make it a wrap-top, but I like the agraff-closure on the envelope, so I'm not quite sure...
I'm glad it's weekend already tomorrow, yey!
Oh, and I have NO idea why all yellow in the pictures turns out blue in this entry... never happened before!
